Beaglebone Black power supply question (from an IC noob):
I have an old power supply that’s labelled with output of 5V and 2.5A.
Will this work for a BBB?
I see in the BBB System Reference Manual where it says, “The board requires a regulated 5VDC +/-.25V supply at 1A. A higher current rating may be needed if capes are plugged into the expansion headers.”
How do we determine how much current is too much?
