USB Power spec


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


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


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


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


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.


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


Whoa that’s awesome!
