Topic: Minimum supply current required for Arduino Due (Read 173 times) previous topic - next topic

What's the minimum supply current required for Arduino Due?  I only want to power the Due itself and source 5mA from I/O pins.  I'm planning to supply power to the 5V pin as described in the item 3 in this thread.

The 800mA mentioned on the Due's home page seems kind of high.  I suspect that's the max current that it can source to the external circuitry.

Any suggestion, insight or reference is really appreciated!

It depends on the voltage. The Due has switchmode power supplies so higher voltage will give lower current.

If you have a multimeter, you can measure it yourself.
