 Note that the two screw terminals that are designated for a positive and ground power supply act in only one direction. This means that the ground screw terminal is directly attached to the ground pin, pin 5, on the 6-pin Pmod header and the positive power supply screw terminal is directly attached to the positive power supply pin, pin 6, on the 6-pin Pmod header. This is different than other modules where there is a jumper block to either provide power from the system board or from an external power source, such as the PmodCON3. Note that the two screw terminals that are designated for a positive and ground power supply act in only one direction.

-Consequently,​ users have to be aware of what kind of demand they put on these pins as the pins on the a chipKIT board are only able to accept a voltage ​up to 5V as well as only being able to source or sink a limited amount of current. Please see the reference manual of your respective system board for its specific limitations.+Consequently,​ users have to be aware of what kind of demand they put on these pins as the pins on Digilent system boards ​are only able to accept a certain ​voltage as well as only being able to source or sink a limited amount of current.
