USB Power spec


#1

What is the power specification on the Parva’s USB host port? How much can it supply to an external device?


#2

It’s designed to supply 500mA, with over-current protection kicking in at ~900mA.


#3

Thanks Brad! Is that at 5v? 9v? 12v?


#4

USB ports (prior to USB type C) only do 5V


#5

Great! I had the idea of powering my new Alyseum AL-88c midi interface. It needs 500mA at 5v so it could be the perfect match with the right adapter.


#6

I was able to power a Squarp Pyramid with my Parva… fun times!

Whoa that’s awesome!
