IXORA Carrier Board USB current Capacity

Hi,

I’ve Ixora Carrier Board, I want to interface Hokuyo URG-04LX scanner to IXora USB port.
My question is
URG-04LX consumes 500mA at start up, Can IXORA supply 500mA ?? other peripherals will also be connected to IXORA.

Thanks

Sure, 500mA is actually as per USB spec. Just make sure your power supply can provide enough current.

hi,
I’ve other sensors too, total current will be drawn from board will be apprx 1.5 to 1.7 A. Can Ixora supply that much of current??.

Adapter I’m using is of 12V, 2.5A.

Thanks

No! if current draw is going beyond 500mA per USB port, one should use an external powered USB hub.

I guess the question is on what interfaces will you draw that much current. As @bhuvan.tx pointed out the TPS2052BD high side switches on the USB ports are designed for 500mA only.

hi,

Thanks !!

I’ll use externally powered USB hub
