Are Neurons and BrainBoardz compatible with 5V sensors and circuits?

Yes.  BrainBoardz support 5V sensors and we provide 5V screw terminal connections on many of our boards. We also provide 5V pins on the Mini PCIe  connector. To use 5V in your projects, Neurons and BrainBoardz must be powered by USB (a computer or a power bank will work) or via a 5V DC power adapter connected to a BrainBoardz screw terminal connector. Verify that the positive (+) and negative (-) wires from your DC power supply matches the screw terminal labeling. Please note that the ESP32-S3 pins cannot be directly connected to 5V. Connecting 5V to an ESP32-S3 pin will destroy the module!
