Can the supply accept greater than 60 watts? I have a 19.5V supply that can push 6.7 amps (130 watts) that I will splice on the proper barrel connector. Since the input is 14V-20V, could it handle a spike of greater than 20V? The supply has an output range of +/-5% possibly outputting 20.47V.
Are the SATA power connectors JST type RE? The only info I see in schematic is "2d54" which I'm assuming is 2.54mm pins. If so, I'll be limited to 2 amps per 5V pin which will hinder my powering of the SATA disks. If I were to run an 80% efficient 12V to 5V converter could I draw 2 amps off the 5V pin and 2 amps off the 12V pin at the same time? What is the total current limit on the SATA assembly? I only need approx 9.8 amps total on the 5V supply to account for all disks spinning up at the same time (staggered spinup or PUIS are possibilities to explore but I want to be able to handle full spinup).
Code: Select all
2 amps @ 12V = 24 watt 24 watt * .8 = 19.2 watt @ 5V 19.2 watt / 5 = 3.84 amps (3.84 + 3.84 + 2 + 2) * .8 = 11.28 amps counting some inefficiencies
I understand in the networking post that this PCIe adapter seems to work well with non-GPU application. Has anyone tried the bplus adapters? They are pricey but also have good reviews from other sources (working on NUCs).
