USB Power

Question

Hello.  Is there anything special about the USB power cable that comes with the AD2?  I've tried to use a couple cables with inline switches to allow easier on/off, but neither seem to work.  Both work with my RPi.

Upon further reflection, I bet my switched cables do not have all the USB lines coming through.  RPi only needs power via it's microUSB input.

Hi @Glenn,

That is likely the case; the AD2 will require the attached USB cable to support data as well as power, though you can use an external power supply to power the the Analog Discovery 2 instead of the USB cable.

Let us know if you have any further questions.

Thanks,
JColvin
