6 Replies and 3194 Views 3.3V_or_1.8V: How much current is available for user circuits  3194  6 Started by  Scott Battocchi The OMAP-L138 SOM-M1 Hardware Specification / Hardware Documentation cautions that for the 3.3V_or_1.8V voltage rail:'I/O Voltage Output from SOM. Do not use this as a general purpose power source. Use this pin to power level shifters etc.' Looking at the schematic it seems like the TPS65070 DCDC2 channel can supply 1.5A of output current.  I would like to use the 3.3V_or_1.8V rail to power a couple of circuits that do not provide a separate IOV/VDDIO pin: A micr...
