Hello I recently baught a Pi Cobbler. I am busy working through the lessons in the Raspberry Pi Adafruit learning system. I am interested in trying lesson 8 on using a Servo Motor with the Raspberry Pi and Cobbler. However I have just one concern. Excuse my ignorance. I see the Servo would be powered by a battery pack of 6 volts but the Rasperry pi can only handle 3.5 volts. Is there any chance I can damage my Raspberry Pi by "frying" it.
Obviously I will be careful to follow the instructions carefully. I realise that the signal going into the pi from the servo motor is 3.5 volts. I also realise that only the servo is powered by a battery pack of 6 volts.
However I am still a bit concerned.
