Minimum Ezb V4 Operating Voltage

Assistance Requested

Help Jim Milan with their question and receive $10 of EZ-Credit to get more robots and parts from our store. The following information was provided about their previous efforts searching tutorials for a resolution.

Jim Milan claims to have checked these sources:

What is the minimum operating voltage for the EZB V4? I would like to power the V4 using a regulated 5V/5A dc-dc converter. This would allow me to use 5V sensors without having to add any adapter boards to the ports. A separate power source will provide power for any servos.

I have found a few conversations, tutorials and activities that may help with your question. Take a look at these links. I've sorted them by what I believe to be most relevant but that is not always the case as I'm still learning.

Also, consider reviewing the Learn section for informative lessons and activities. Check it out!


That'll work great! I do my tests with a 5v power supply on my desk. You will be able to run quite a few servos with 5 amps, but not a lot because it'll get hot quick Smile

I don't know the specs off the top of my head, but you should be able to get away with running the EZ-B v4 with 3 volts

I also have a USB adapter, which allows me to develop code for the EZ-B powered by the USB. It won't let me run servos, but it does do basic audio and video without browning out (too often)


Thanks DJ. I was hoping that was the case.


The chipset uses 3.3 v when I checked the data sheet.
