TK1 Alternate Power Connection

Hello all,

I want to power my TK1 from somewhere other than the power jack. Is it possible and safe to apply a power signal through pin 25 of J3A1 instead of using the DC jack at J5C1? I’ve seen on the schematic that they’re not exactly connected (a handful of R’s and C’s separate them) but if I use a sufficiently clean and stable supply, will I get away with this?

This seems like “a bad idea”. The molex connector for a SATA drive is also a bad idea for powering the Jetson.
