Current Limits for 5V PWR_OUTPUT on J29

The 5V PWR_OUTPUT on J29 connects directly to the Catalyst FX 5V power plane with no current limiting. If there is any chance that the connected peripheral might experience over-current conditions or it will draw significant in-rush current, include a current limiting device in your design.

The output is rated for 200 mA, with an absolute maximum of 1000 mA.

If the 5V power plane is drawn down by excessive external loads, the system may reset or experience other undesirable behaviour.
