@Cristian-Bourceanu said in Controlling external motors and LED strips with Omega2+: Normally a MCU can withstand a maximum of 20mA on each GPIO and MT7688 chipset of Omega should have a similar specification. According to the MT7688 datasheet a GPIO can drive 4 mA. According to Onion's Omega2S datasheet: DC current through any digital I/O pin: 8 mA max.
