I’m new to dealing with hardware, so apologies if this is a stupid question.
I would like to power a servo (Futaba S148) from my FEZ Cobra. The servo has three connectors - ground, power and signal. It takes 5V on the connection which supplies it with power, so my instinct would be to hook it up across the 5V In/Out connector and ground. I’m not sure how much current it draws when under load, but let’s assume something high for the sake of argument.
My question is - might drawing a large enough current through that pin damage the board in any way? If so, what’s the limit, roughly?
Thanks in advance
