How protected is the Quad Cortex from power supply input mistakes?
In other words:
- what if a supply is used and the polarity is backwards?
- what if a supply is used and it can’t supply all the current needed?
- What if #2 happened and the voltage sagged below 12V?
- What if a supply is used that is over 12VDC?
Let me be clear, i have no intention of doing any of the above.
I was just wondering how much electrical engineering design had been done to protect the precious DSP’s and analog components inside if a bonehead mistake was made with the external supplying of power?
