Picking a stick at random, you can find the power requirements in the technical specification.
For example, for this stick, look on page 23, section 2.2.3. It needs 5vdc at 4a.
Thanks, Al. But the vague spec sheet you pointed to is my point. All it says is 5V input and that the supply is 5V 4A. Not enough to design a supply. 5V+-? What is the power draw under various conditions and does this include powering remote devices. All device specs show power allowable range and current draw under various conditions. Intel refuses to say but someone must know.
I need to know to design a supply within the allowed ranges of the computeStick and surely Intel should say.
"I need to know to design a supply within the allowed ranges of the computeStick and surely Intel should say."
They did: 5v 4a.(in the example I provided)
I would presume that the standard +/- 5% tolerance will apply as well. This is what most components support (minimally).
