How much current does the BDM multilink draw from the target?
The BDM multilink typically derives it's power directly from the target. The target must supply voltage on pin 6 between 1.8v and 5.25v. The BDM Multilink will draw approximately 100mA when powered from 5v, and 150mA when powered from 3.3v.

If power consumption is a consideration, PEmicro has a power supply which may be used with the BDM Multilink to reduce the current draw from the target to under 10mA. The part number for this supply is BDMMULTI-PS.

If power consumption is a consideration, PEmicro has several other interfaces which draw less current from the target. Both the USB-ML-12 and the Cyclone Pro typically draw less than 10mA from the target.
