Is it possible to power the developer kit via Type-C. I would have to power this on a mobile robot and I plan to use a Energizer pack or something similar (I used it on the Tx2). What can I use here (size of the DC barrel) or type-c battery pack ?
I wish there were some connectors with better positive retention. When driving on bumpy ground, the TX2 devkit barrel connector would vibrate and lose power. USB-C doesn’t seem mechanically much better to me.
Screw connectors, or at least 100mil pin headers, would be preferable.
That may of course be the case, although I had a pretty bad experience with third party carriers and drivers for the TX2.
The new carrier board is pretty much perfect for many ad-hoc mobility solutions (perhaps apart from the heavy heatsink!) so it’s sad we didn’t get that one power supply glitch fixed, too. Maybe some hand soldering could fix that…
