The ground will naturally meet at the DAC, no need to do anything special. Just wire the Placid BP to the IVY.

Cheers!

I have read the manual, but I still want to ask how sensitive is the board to supply voltage.
Can it work with a 6V battery?

Yes. I am working on getting them built now.

Anybody knows?

Which parts are supplied directly from the onboard connector that can't take higher voltage? aren't the onboard regs taking care of the supplies for all the parts?

If you are using v3 Tridents and v2.1 AVCC, you can use a 6V supply without issues.

This is not as simple a question as you might think. A "6 volt" battery does not always supply 6 volts. With a full charge a battery will supply somewhat over its nominal voltage (how much will depend on the type of battery and its condition), and as it discharges the voltage will drop. To have a complete answer to your question, you will need to test the battery and record its real voltage under load, and see what its voltage range is from a full charge to its (nearly) discharged state. Once you know the range of voltages output by your battery, then you will need to ask what voltage range the onboard regulators will work with.

Brian is correct, and even a bit above that is ok. I would not exceed 6.25V without keeping a close eye on the AVCC module, it's shunting a lot of current.

As Barrows said - Make sure you take into account your peak voltage - which is often much higher than the nominal voltage.
