simpleRTK2Blite with 3.6V – 4.2V power supply

marcel asked 1 month ago

I have a power supply ranging from 3.4V up to 4.2V
Can I use this for simpleRTK2Blite?

Should I put the ~4V into XBee Header 3.3Vin or into the USB 5V or into the Pixhawk connector 5V?

If the 3.3V XBee Header can handle up to 4.2V it seems to be the right connection …

thanks
Marcel

Hi Marcel,

Unfortunately the voltage range of simpleRTK2Blite is:
– For the XBee headers 3V to 3.6V
– For the Pixhawk connector 4.5V to 5.5V

You will need a voltage regulator in between your power supply and the board.
