PiCap - Support single power input
« on: December 04, 2016, 07:06:37 PM »
Can anyone that has the PiCap currently from pixelcontroller.com - Can the PI take the power from the input of the PiCap?
I have a different piCap that the power is not able to pass down to the Pi and power it. I have to power it separately.


Thanks

The new version of the pi hats can power the pi also.  5  to 24v are possible.  Believe a few post have been created in the pi hat section of this forum.
