there! I'm planning to use the Raspberry Pi Pico for a project and I'll be using a SCA60c tilt sensor with it. I know that the Pico only has a 3.3V output but the SCA60C needs 5V to power it. I was wondering if I can use the VBUS to power the SCA60C?


1 Answer 1


Yes, that's what VBUS is for.

This assumes that there is spare current available for the SCA60c.

  • Thanks for your reply! This is much appreciated :D
