PS2 port powering
We are setting up a car for show and we have a debate here:
I say that we can add power to the following items from a PS2 mouse port:
1. Dvd Player(USB and external power from PS2)
2.USB hub(external power off PS2) with:
- Liliput TS
- Slim usb Keyboard
- and that same DVD player's usb connected to the hub too.
- one open port for a possible game pad or mouse
Its not a tremendous amount of power, but good ~28watts.
Pretty much, I think, and was told that PS2 is strait on the psu line, so if the PSU can handle it, we are ok.
Is this correct, this is a good thing for anyone who wants a usb hub and doesnt want to deal with the power issue :)
it is max 5v+ or 500mil amps
too much you blow the port then the board...
hard to fix unless you have mad wiring skills
Really appreciate it:)
Thanks for the info.
I would not even consider doing that. 28watts at 5v = 5.6amps which isnt even close to the 500mw the ps2 port(s?) will supply.
um actually it works like a charm!
2. DVD drive
All working together! fantastic
