Electronic protection for input pins: Raspberry Pi GPIO In Depth

The Raspberry Pi GPIO is not buffered, and in this video, Mark Niemann-Ross explains why it is important to protect the GPIO from excess voltage. The relationship between the Broadcom system-on-a-chip and the GPIO is discussed, including information on why voltage has to be controlled. A simple and practical circuit using a zener diode is built and demonstrated.
