DEMOQE BDM Functionality questions

I bought one of the DEMOQE boards made by P&E and distributed by mouser et. al for $50. 

My question is, if I install the 6-pin header and use this board to program external target boards, will it support voltage level translation for, lets say a AW32 processor running at 5V.  The QE board runs at roughly 3 Volts, but it does have a battery to power the board from, so I would assume this would mean that the USB-BDM that is on the backside of the board would have to have some kind of level translation to allow the variable voltage.  I'm just not sure how high this can go.

Would appreciate any advice.
