Powering OpenMV without using the USB port

Postby Fabien » Tue Jul 26, 2016 1:25 pm

Hi,

Is it possible to power the board without the USB port? If yes, which pin and what is the required voltage (min, max)?

Thanks,

Use the VIN pin (the second pin on the right header, right next to the USB connector, see the pinout image in the IDE) max voltage is 5.5v min voltage would be at least 3.4-3.7v to get 3.3v. A 3.7v LiPo works fine.
