Are 4.95 V sufficient?

by mschmidt on Fri Jan 16, 2009 11:18 am

I am more or less an electronics newbie and the Fuzebox is one of my first soldering experiments. Everything works fine so far and I've soldered all the parts needed for the first test, that is checking if there are steady 5 V on the board. My multimeter shows a steady 4.95 V. Is that sufficient? (Perhaps I should add that I am living in Germany).

Cheers,

Maik

4.95 is just fine, the 5v regulator will be off by about 1-2% without problems
if its like 4.5 or 5.5 thats not good!
