There is Instructables documentation with schematic diagram (in case anyone is interested in making the board from scratch). Currently, Anyone that is running Falcon Player in a network without internet know how frustrating it is to keep light show scheduling time on Raspberry Pi when power is disconnected because there is no real time clock on the Raspberry Pi. Also, to gracefully power down Falcon Player require that one go into the application and shutdown the Pi since there is no dedicated power button. 

I have been playing around with a Pi-hat that has real time clock and dedicated power button and power indicator. This board was tested on Raspberry Pi4 and thus the recommended Pi board, however, it does work on Pi 3 and Pi zero but there could be some inconsistencies like power indicator not coming up in Model 3 B+ whereas it works perfectly on 3 B V1.2 and Pi Zero W is rather short for the board even though the board worked without issues.I have some fabricated boards for anyone who might be interested. The bare board comes with all electronic components and battery holder (without the battery for surface mailing purposes) that the board needs to work however all other terminals will have to be purchased independently details of all the terminals and steps to install software that will make the board work are on this instructables link.

Here is the image of fully populated board with an optional LED integrated momentary switch:
