TinyIOx current draw?

Post by jsiedlicki » Sun Feb 18, 2018 7:15 pm

I am trying to add up the maximum current draw on my +5Vref pin. I power the TinyIOx and many other sensors from it and would like to know where I'm at. I have data for most the sensors and other items but I can not find the max current draw for the TinyIOx. Anybody know off the top of your head. I'm looking to compute my worst case scenario just so I'm safe.

A safe maximum value would be about 50mA. It might get higher than that if you have all the options enabled and you also have the serial port and the CAN bus communicating at full speed but that's an unlikely scenario.
