I have a Particle FeatherWing Tripler, a Particle Boron 3g and a ultimate GPS featherwing. I want to use it as an asset tracker in my car.
My Particle Power shield and my asset tracker V2 work great, Now I want a power shield / featherwing for the 3rd gen. Is there one already out there that i’m missing or should I continue banging my head on the wall developing one?
It's an automotive environment which is not friendly to sensitive electronic components. I've burned up several microcontrollers connecting them to a car's 12V dc. between AC ripple and over voltages / spikes, no beuno. I use some lm2596 step downs now but they're not ideal either. I like the power shield as I can use a much bigger lipo and 12v and it will auto switch from 12v stepdown to lipo without interruption.
