> Is there a problem running more than one Thunderbolt off of the same linear supply (assuming the supply can support the current demands) or does each Thunderbolt require its’ own separate linear supply?
I do not anticipate that multiple Tbolts would interact in a negative
manner if they were connected to a good linear supply capable of driving
them all. Of course, there is always a possibility that I'm wrong and
they would interact. Only trying it will answer that question.
Note that, as Bob pointed out, the +12v supply will need to source
700-800mA *per Tbolt* for a few minutes if they are all powered up at
once from cold. Even if you wouldn't do this in a manual startup, it
would happen when the power came back on if you had a power failure
(unless you devised some automatic means to prevent it).
