Re: Raspberry Pi Zero automatic safe shutdown

This module https://www.tindie.com/products/picotou ... w-version/ is not so simple or cheap but it does automatic power up & safe shutdown. It is also designed to work in an environment such as a car, motorcycle, camper, ....

Re: Consultant Needed - Need large I/O with Pi 4

Hi, I can help in the part with I/O port expanding. I have developed a module that can control up to 64 inputs or outputs (64 I or O per USB port) via USB port. For your case = 2 USB ports. The same module can work as Input or as Output, the choice is made with a jumper! The module itself does not r...

Re: Pi in the Car - Accessory Power Monitoring

Relay switching time is too long for sensitive electronics like Pi.

Re: Shutting down and STAYING shut down

Try something like this for your solution (not a real code) void loop() int state=1 if (state==1) { digitalWrite(GPIO_X, HIGH); // bypass start push button&arduino power supply and start raspberry delay xx seconds/minutes (raspberry full boot time) state=0 } if (digitalRead(GPIO_Z) == LOW) // st...

Re: Shutting down and STAYING shut down

Similarities in the design are: using a microcontroller to control the process, using delays, using GPIO for start up and as sense for shutdwon on Raspberry Pi side ... There are two buttons in your set up (start&stop) For me it is ACC, for both of them. My design is designed to automate the sta...

...atmega's GPIO is being used to keep this "relay" is the "continue to power the board" state. The pi begins booting... I think that's a problem here. Obviously GPIO resets Raspberry Pi. Especially when using a voltage regulator that is still faster than the classic relay. I us...

Re: Problem for undervoltage

@Joel_Mckay Thanks for your point of view. I agree for the 5V power rail (all marked as 5V on schematic are on the same rail), but I don't agree that the 5V on the GPIO (pin 2 and pin 4) are not after polyfuse. I don't have RPi3B+, only 3B. If 5V on the GPIO doesn't go through the polyfuse than must...

Re: Problem for undervoltage

OK,

can you show me on schematic where is the 5V input for the GPIO header (from where this voltage is coming)?
Obviously I'm looking at something wrong

Thank you!

Re: Problem for undervoltage

How can I solve this problem? How about doing this: 1. Power the Raspberry Pi with its own 5v 2.5A PSU with thick microSUB cable. 2. Power the Arduino with its own PSU (5V 2A perhaps) 3. Connect the USB deviced thru a powered Hub.. Its still up to you to apply the solution....... or continue wonder...

Re: Problem for undervoltage

@markost That is the usb port input, not the 5v/VCC gpio header pin 2 and 4. The 3B+ looks like it has kept this external shield power feature. the power supply comes via the microUSB, it goes over the polyfuse. Here we have "first" 5v, which is the same as the GPIO expansion pin 2 and 4....

Re: Problem for undervoltage

Let us assume you already enabled max_usb_current=1 ... This site is wrong for 3 reasons:. https://www.raspberrypi.org/help/faqs/#powerReqs 1. The 5v header pins do not pass through the poly fuse. 2. While 1.2A for the USB port is fine, that optimistic minimum 400mA core draw should be more like 1....
