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 am interested in purchasing the electronics explorer board, however after a not-so-quick google about the board I was unable to find any information about the protection the board offers. I am interested in knowing whether the board has any protection against accidental short-circuits, particularly the waveform generator since I read that waveform generators are particularly succeptible to getting damaged when short circuited, but also the rest of the components of the board. Thanks in advance I´ll be waiting for your answers
