Powering the IFC6410 from a 12V Battery

Post  ljking on Wed Jan 14, 2015 5:07 pm

The IFC6410 DragonBoard can draw quite high peak currents, up to 3 Amperes at
5 Volts. The Battery on the Robot provides ~12V. We need to step the robot
battery voltage down to 5V. The 'simplest' solution is to use an off-the shelf
DC-DC Converter. Here is an example of one that will work:

This solution is a little expensive, but will be rugged and reliable. I used
the same supply (with a slightly different form factor) when building my last
Robot. See item 107 in the article here:

The one on Amazon seems to be good enough, and is dirt cheap. I'll talk to Mr. MacKinnon about it when I am at my build shift tomorrow.
