Can you power an Atom via the Grove header? (and skip the usbc)

  • 1] Can you power an Atom (Atom S3 Lite, AtomS3, Atom Lite) via the Grove header and leave the usbc disconnected?

    2] Also, what is the minimum current required to power the various Atom controllers and use wifi or bluetooth?

    3] Which one requires the least current?

    Thanks in advance!

  • So I answered 1] myself (yes, you can power an Atom via the grove power pins)

    I still would like to know the specs of the different devices, what the minimum current is for operation, with and without bluetooth (obviously using RF would take more power, to transmit)

    These seem like basic questions for someone trying to incorporate these products into a design - but I can't find any relevant info :(
