    Default NOOB looking for a Picap manual/ info

    Hi,
    I'm looking to buy a falcon picap to run some rgb pixels and some legacy renard16 boards. Is there a Picap operator's manual available? Does the picap supply the renard16 power voltage through the serial rj45? I certainly don't want any smoke from this project.
    Thanks.

    There is a whole section on the FalconChristmas.com website. https://falconchristmas.com/forum/in...oard,61.0.html
    As far as a manual, I haven't found one on either the website nor github.

    The PiCap does not supply power to the devices connected to the serial ports.
    The pixel ports are generic ports that can drive several hundred pixels per port. I have measured to 600 pixels other claim more.
