I am newbie on embedded system designing side. I have one confusion in mind that is I want to turn ON/OFF GPS using ATxmega128A3-AU GPIO.
GPS current consumtion is 45mA.
while ATxmega128A3-AU GPIO maximum current is 20mA.
Can i attach GPS VCC pin to GPIO pin of MCU?
I want to send high signal at GPIO to turn ON GPS and when required I will send low signal at GPIO.
Please advise with your valuable suggestions. Thank you
GPS Model is SKYLAB SKM53.
