FEZ Mini and USB Power


#1

Just a quick one.

Can one power the FEZ Mini using just the USB cable. I have to travel and would love to take the FEZ Mini with me so I can try out code etc.

Many thanks
Dave

yes. have fun.

Sure, the mini runs fine with just usb connected. You can code as much as you like.
As soon as you are connecting power consuming components, you will need a external supply.

For coding usb is fine ;D

works fine for me even with a display and sd card attached

It will really come down to how much you are drawing on the USB. Small things like a SD interface, or display are fine.

I’d stop at running Servo’s thou :>

Take Care
