I have a couple questions about the HiJack, and was wondering if you could help me.
The wiki page (http://www.seeedstudio.com/wiki/index.php?title=Hijack) says that it can supply 7.4mW of power. Is this the power the unit can supply to an external sensor/peripheral? Or is it the total power harvested for use by the microcontroller + sensors?
Does this leave enough power to drive the TI MSP430, and data communication?
The wiki also notes that “Because of the energy harvest mode, the sensor power draw in this kit should not exceed 5mW.” Does that mean that the microcontroller needs at least 2.4mW to function?
I have a product idea that would need 1-2 milliamperes of DC current for an external circuit. According to the voltage (2.8v) and power (5-7.4mW) specs available through HiJack, I figure that I would have between 1.78 - 2.64mA of maximum DC current available. Is that correct?
Can the power output (current) be adjusted easily via an app using the libHiJack? Does the adjustment of power come from the microcontroller on the HiJack, or by adjusting the volume of the phone?
