1) In adc.h I see the comment:
#define ADC_EXT_POWER 7 /* The external power voltage,
2) On the schematics, I see the raw power coming in, going through a 82K
resistor and clamped by a zener to 2.7v.
3) In power.c, I see (cutting out the #ifdefs):
/* Recorder */
return adc_read(ADC_EXT_POWER) > 0x100;
I'm having a hard time reconciling the three pieces of information.
What am I missing???
