I suspect your current spike corresponds to some extra activity. Is the internal clock speed varying, as uP's intended for mobile use often do?
Yes. You are charging the bulk bypass caps with it.
Hard to say (even if I wished to guess what "kinking off" is, but I don't want to know ;-).
power distribution wires? I did note that with the
SBC Power Terminals so I think that is a good
That's a little much for a 14 inch wire run. At those currents, heating is not really an issue, but drop may be depending on your supply tolerance and how the SBC is specified. 16 guage should be plenty big.
Is there a reason to go for the smaller wire?
