- RoHS 2 Compliant: Yes
- Power Supply Voltage: +5VDC (5.15V for 5V USB Host Port Power Out)
- Power Consumption: Max 650mA/5VDC
The G2C1 module requires a 5V DC input, +/- 5%, on jumper J3. At boot-up, it uses a maximum of 650 mA with no external devices attached. If the module is supplying power to external USB devices (500mA max.), the input power should be a minimum of 5.15 V to meet the USB specification at the far end of the longest USB cable run. The module can also supply +5V to other external devices on some of the connectors, and all such supplies need to be considered in the power budget. The input power connector can handle 3A of nominal 5V input. The module can also be powered via the USB OTG connector. Please consult Reach Technology for requirements to power this way.
The board mounting holes are connected to a digital ground. These must be connected to a chassis ground either directly or through a transient protection diode for ESD. The resistive touch circuit has ESD protection that shorts ESD on the touch panel to the board mounting holes.
Gaskets are available, visit Mounting Options for more information.

Detailed Explanation: On orderly shutdown, Linux was writing the last known time to /etc/timestamp, and then on power-on, it compared the time from HW real-time clock with the file value and set system time to the “lastest” of the two. The problem is, if the HW clock battery dies, the “later” time is invalid but might only be off by an hour or a day and not enough to draw attention, but if the application is doing time/date data logging this could be enough to mess things up. By making it rely on the HW clock only, if the date is wrong it will be 1970 which should be obviously wrong.
