I'm going to be working on controlling a motor from the RPI board. The motor needs 12V. I'm thinking of buying a single power supply, to supply both the RPI and the motor with during prototyping. For example, I'm considering this Mean Well 12v supply: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/14099, since it has 2 x 12v DC outputs.
- Can I use this to supply both at the same time?
- Can I use a UBEC to turn the 12v to 5v for the RPI?
- Generally, is this type of power supply a good choice for supplying an RPI plus something else when prototyping?
