Polarity reversal protection

Polarity reversal protection
Reversal of the supply lines to a circuit normally has disastrous consequences. The protection described here can prevent such a disaster occuring. It consists of an enrichment MOSFET that is connected close to the negative supply input. The transistor conducts only when it receives a positive gate voltage from the positive supply line via R1.
