I´m a french student and i´m working with a proyect to evaluate differents developpement platforms and right now i´m evaluating the Beaglebone, but I have some questions because there are a lot of information but I need to know some things:
How can I use the PWM like inputs, if possible?
What is the real energy consumption of the board? Because I have read about all the rails of power and all the voltages that manage the system but there´s no a general consumption energy of the board in Amperes and Watts.
Is possible work in autonomy with the board ON? , I mean, I have read that there are two modes that the board can be powered: by the USB or 5VDC optional. But I need to know if there is a possibility to work with a battery instead these both sources during 1 minute, and if possible, what kind of battery?
Thank you for your attention and your answers.
