Sorry, this should be a really quick, minor league question. Say I've converted a pc power supply into a lab power supply, and I have a +5v line that gives out 5 volts and up to 20 amps or so (theoretically). If I were to plug that into my microcontroller, would it be damaged?
I ask this question concerning the amperage. Is the amperage drawn out by the microcontroller or forced into it?
I'm actually trying to run a motor driver and stepper motor off of the power supply. I think the amperage would be drawn out, otherwise it would damage everything in the pc is would have been connected in, no?
thanks in advance!
