This might be a silly question but I can't find any information about this or maybe I am not asking right.
I have a AM1117 5V voltage regulator that is usually powered by a 12V to 16V battery.
Now I have certain situations where I want to just put 5V power on the board (like USB). I am pretty sure that if I put 5V into the AM1117 I won't get 5V out of it :-)
However how could I solve this issue on a simple level. Trying to avoid putting more components on the board.
