# 4. Mini v2 node hardware
Mini node is the CAN-PWM converter designed to control 1-4 ESC or servo. Since the node has a built-in DC-DC, a servo can be powered through it. The board also supports receiving feedback from the esc flame.
This page is about hardware specific details. For general information, refer to the 1. General page., for software related details please refer Cyphal interface or DroneCAN interface.

Schematic can be provided via e-mail request or issue on github.
|1||UCANPHY Micro (JST-GH 4)||Devices that deliver power to the bus are required to provide 4.9–5.5 V on the bus power line, 5.0 V nominal. Devices that are powered from the bus should expect 4.0–5.5 V on the bus power line. The current shall not exceed 1 A per connector.|
|2||6-pin Molex (502585-0670 (opens new window), 502578-0600 (opens new window))||Contacts support up to 100 V, 2 A per contact. But the board may work only with 2S-6S.|
|3||SWD||STM32 firmware updating using programmer-sniffer.|
|4||PWM1, PWM2, PWM3, PWM4||Connectors should be used to deliver signal and power (below 1 amp) to payload such as SERVO or ESC (without power delivery)|

# 4.5. Power Supply Recommendations
Device is designed to operate from an input voltage supply range between 4.5 V and 5.5 V over CAN-LV connector, or 5.5 - 30 V from CAN-HV. This input supply must be able to withstand the maximum input current and maintain a stable voltage. The resistance of the input supply rail should be low enough that an input current transient does not cause a high enough drop that can cause a false UVLO fault triggering and system reset. The amount of bulk capacitance is not critical, but a 47-μF or 100-μF electrolytic capacitor is a typical choice.
