Title: Remote power switch
Post by: jtbourke on October 22, 2020, 07:53:03 PM
I'd like to put my tinyzero and associated stack of boards in a project box and have a switch on the box to turn the device on and off.  Is there any part I can order for this?

We do not have a direct solution for that available, unfortunately. We do have some project boxes that you could drill a hole into, but then you would need to think of something to be able to access the switch efficiently through a hole:

The best option in my opinion would be to design and 3D print an enclosure. The TinyTV is the closest enclosure we sell to what you are looking for. Unfortunately, it is designed for the TinyScreen+ so the sizing and functionality wouldn't work out of the box. So I would recommend perhaps looking at the switch parts of the TinyTV enclosure file and then designing the project box from there. The TinyTV enclosure file: https://github.com/TinyCircuits/TinyCircuits-TinyTV-ASK4002/raw/master/res/TinyTV_3D_files.zip

There are hardware sketches available for our boards on each project page that should help.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
