Thank you!
I was also wondering if it needs excess power if I connect a Hub to it -- will it power it up successfully? What is the maximum power draw from the USB ports? are two usb hosts have different power draw? I'm considering a Wifi card and two camera modules. Do I need to make some kind of driver for the power consumption?
Sorry that I'm a computer science student and only know limited EE, but I want to make sure as much as I can before actual action.
Thanks again.
Regards,
Mi Chen
