I though of designing a HAT (additional snap-in board) for Raspberry Pi that has ACDC power converter, 5V protection and a super-capacitor for short power drop solution on it.
Why? Maybe it is a bit more elegant than having 2 units, IMHO.
Is there a reason why I should NOT do it? There are many different Hats around but none are for ACDC power supply.
- The parts are all good quality and made of existing ACDC modules.
- The boards will be placed in a sealed plastic box and will be located in locations out of reach.
Although this is for the RPi the same question can be for Arduino or other development boards or SOMs
