    Thank you KurtE for the information.

    The lab power source can provide up to 20A of current.
    Those converters are indeed a bit overkill for my project.

    So today I resoldered all the pins that I could think of on the Teensy and the PCB. This did not solve the SPI problem.

    However, I now think that it is indeed a power issue.

    This means that instead of using SPI.begin() I just use SPI1.begin()? Or do I have to do other changes too?


    Thank you very much for clarifying this.
