I’m integrating a Seeeduino Mega 1.23 into a larger system that includes a regulated 5V power supply.
How would I bypass the Seeeduino Mega’s own regulator and power the board from an external 5V supply?
First, will it work to feed 5V and GND in through the 0.1" header?
Second, I would actually rather not tie up those header sockets. Is there a good place on the top of the board I could solder directly to feed 5V and GND into the board?
I’m not entirely clear on how the power manager circuit (in the v1.23 Eagle file) functions, so I don’t want to start plugging 5V without some design guidance.
