Reply from mike@FromecoI got a reply from Mike at Fromeco, I hope he doesn't mind posting his reply in this public forum. Here it is:
We're not quite ready to release specs yet, I'll be writing up a cutsheet for the product as we wrap up the beta testing period, which may be quite soon.
The device will consist of two regulators on a common pcb, either of
which will be capable of driving the entire load on an all-digital ship (they are identical regulators). The design basis is assuming desert conditions (40C, radiative heat transfer) with minimal convection and substantially elevated temperatures inside a canopy (80C), which turns out to be quite conservative on several counts. I have not yet performed the specification run at STP, but at these most limiting conditions the regulator will quite easily handle 1.5A at 5V (gyro) + 4.5A at 6V (everything else).
[ My note - as both regulators are the same, I'm assuming I can run 1.5A at 6V (collective) + 4.5A at 5V (everything else) ]
The 5V portion is not adjustable, and is intended to provide power to
the gyro (it plugs into the regulator proper). The adjustable section will
have a range of roughly 4.9 to 6.2V, to the receiver.
[My note - need to wait to see how things connect in my desired config ]
I hope this helps a little bit; as I mentioned, we should be releasing
some sort of documentation within a couple of weeks.
So this is exactly what I need - two outputs, one @ 5V fixed, the other at 5-6V variable, and both can be used to power as much or as little of the radio gear as possible. My one reservation then is price compared to the single regulator product, we'll just have to wait for that.
I wonder if we'll see them sell their products via an outlet in the UK anytime soon...
Thanks Mike and Fromeco for your helpful respsonse.
