DON'Ts

There are a few things that can be considered as don’ts when working with the Lithne, a few of these which we consider noteworthy will be mentioned on this page.

  • The microprocessors of the Lithne operate on 3V3, therefore do not put over 3V3 on any of the digital or analog ports. When you want to use the Lithne for controlling DMX-devices, which operates on 5V please refer to the DMX Shield.
  • Don’t draw more than 1.5A from 5V, the internal protection will reset the board.
  • Don’t draw more than 500mA from 3V3, the internal protection will reset the board.
  • Don’t put the Lithne on metal surfaces when powered on this will cause a short circuit.
