    Let's say one uses a UDOO Quad, Dual or a Neo in a school environment. Apart from the powered UDOO board there is no other power source. Can these boards be damaged by wrong wiring? Like from the +5v to input port, from the +5v to the +3.3v power source, etc etc.

    Apart from making mistakes kids are eager to experiment 'what happens if'', which is a great way to learn, but not if you have to bear the costs of replacement.

    Well, I'd say to avoid these common mistakes:
    • UDOO on metal while UDOO is on ---> this will fuck the board the same way it'd be fucked if you put it in water
    • UDOO in water
    • Feeding the board with more the than 15V 2A (maybe the limit is higher but you better not to test this :))
    • Giving more than 3.3V in input to a GPIO

    One time I lost the heatsink during using it. It was not destroyed, the cpu was clocked down during this time.
