While your LaunchPad has been designed to operate from USB bus power under normal use conditions, it's possible that you will add booster packs to the LaunchPad and exceed the available power from the USB port. In this case, the board has been designed to accept a barrel jack (J17) although it is unpopulated by default.

Barrel jacks known to fit this footprint are:

  • CUI PJ002BH (2.5mm)
