  • Hello, we got an issue with Open Log, because before we bought it, we saw in the datasheet that it would consume less than 6mA ( in a forum at most 15mA). Yet once plug, Openlog with the SD card wouldn't boot unless we got at least 30mA on the power supply used to test(seems like Open log need a high current spike at boot)How to avoid that spike of current at booting? thank you. Adding a big capacitor is not helping. More modules were tested with same problem. we are using telephone line to power our PCB, and can't get more than 18mA on long line. also we can't add a local battery, nor external power supply.

No public wish lists :(
