Does anyone have the pinouts of the mini power, prefereably the intel one. I want to figure out if there is a way I can use my m2-atx to power the mini. If I cant what is out there that will work?
The Mini has an extra wire in the power adapter, a gray one, that the mini uses to insure it has the right power source. The Carnetix 1900 has a white (iSense) wire that is soldered to this gray wire. With the intel minis you need a 6.8k resistor soldered to it.
I don't know if the m2-atx power supply has this wire or how you can replicate the iSense wire.
Yes, and yes, that's how mine is set up. You can even get a point of load output at 5 volts to run your USB hub if you want. Go to Carnetix to find out about it.
@gmachine35 - The M2-ATX is designed for PC's that use an ATX power supply. It outputs several voltages but not the 19 that the Mini needs. It won't work with the Mini.
Bugbyte, thanks for the clarification on the M2-atx
I have the P1900 with a dual core mini in my car, so far it works great. Be sure to get a powered USB hub for your peripherals or else they will wake the mini up when it is supposed to be sleeping so the P1900 will cut power to it when the ignition is off.
So lemme get something straight here. I cant have any usb devices pluged into the mini else it will wake up? Also I want to put the mini into hibernate not sleep. Can the p1900 do that? Thanks
