  • My KiwiSDR has Died [power supply problem]

    Good Morning John,

    I have followed through the information you have requested.

    1. When the BBG is running by itself, the LEDs are pulsing, as they are processing data, and then 1x LED pulses as a heartbeat. The Ethernet LEDs are lit, and traffic is pulsing as one would expect to see. (had video, but not needed now)
    2. On the Kiwi board itself, detached, there is good continuity between the power pins and the 2x pins on P9 (5VE and Gnd). When the 2 boards are connected I have .725Mohm of resistance (725Kohm).
    3. OK, lets go back, I have now just tried a brought, brand new 5V, 2A power supply (#4) and the Kiwi is living. Of the 3 I had tried, two had 5V/2A on the plug, 1 only had 4V, so appears a power supply issue.

    Thanks for your advice. Regards Kevin.
