Hi, folks. Does the Analog Discovery Studio have overvoltage protection for its digital IO, like the Analog Discovery 2? As far as I can tell, the underlying hardware for the Studio is the same as the AD2, but while the AD2 reference manual details +/- 20V overvoltage protection for digital IO (on pages 31 and 32), the Studio's reference manual states (on page 9): "Important Note: To prevent damage to the device, care must be taken not to drive input signals to the digital input/output channels over 5V." This is concerning, especially in the context of education. If true, this means a student could cause damage by inadvertently connecting the fixed 12V rails to the digital IO. Any clarification would be helpful. Thanks!
Hello, I ordered a brand new Analog Discovery bundle directly from Digilent a few weeks ago for use in a college class, but every time I have attempted to build a simple circuit and connect the board to WaveForms, I consistently get one of the two attached errors. The components of the parts kit have been working fine but it seems like there is a problem with the amount of power being supplied to the Analog Discovery board itself. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, bucklc2
