Hi dear forum,
After making this VS1838b IR receiver, which is rated to up to 5V, connected to 9V for around 20 minutes, I realized the mistake and disconnected. Later, when I connected back to 5V and to arduino, I saw it is still working perfectly
That made me wonder about higher voltage than the voltage rating and the damage it makes. How come the device is still working? And does the damage is immediate when occurs?
