Beaglebone Black PMIC for battery backup #BeagleBoneBlack @TXInstruments @BeagleBoardOrg
Interlock Rochester contributor antitree shows us how to charge BeagleBone Black off of li-po batteries with the built-in Power Management Integrated Circuit (PMIC).
Having a battery connected to your board gives you the ability to do things like making a UPS for you beaglebone so in the case of a power loss, it can politely shut-down, run a custom command, or just continue running for as long as the battery can charge it.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
