    Input voltage range of power connector




      What is the input voltage range for the power connector on the Intel Compute board? I have seen three different documented values:


      1. 5V only (https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/boardsandkits/aero/intel-aero-compute-board-guide.pdf, section 3.6.1)

      2. 5V-12V (Intel® Aero Compute Board Hardware Features and Usage v.1)

      3. 5V-20V (Powering the Intel Aero Compute Board In Flight)


      We would like to plug the battery directly into this power connector but a fully charged 3 cell battery is 12.6V, so this will only be possible if the third document is correct. On the Intel Aero RTF drone (which we are not using), there is a power module so the battery is not plugged in to the Intel Compute directly.
