CY8CKIT-023 kit power mode

Question: Can iPod/iPhone/iPad power the entire accessory set up of CY8CKIT-001 DVK + CY8CKIT-023 EBK?

 

Answer:

CY8CKIT-023 has been designed to support iPod powered accessories. However, it is recommended not to power the CY8CKIT-001 + CY8CKIT-023 setup through iPod. CY8CKIT-001 DVK generally exceeds iPod’s maximum allowable current consumption and hence could cause a potential voltage contention issue.
