GPIO Max Electrical specs
I wish to power my Up Squared Board using an external battery by connecting it to the GPIOs. However, I would like to know what kind of protection does exist and what are the max ratings.
For example, I have a 7.2V battery, is there an internal voltage regulator making it OK to connect it directly or should I use an external DC/DC converter ? Also, It would help me to know the peak current consumption of the board.
