Power for Single Board Computer

Power for Single Board Computer

What is it?

A power adaptor for the single board computer.

What does it do in the LSTN kit?

The single board computer needs a constant source of power in order to control the rest of the ground station. In this case, we are using a PoE (Power over Ethernet) HAT (Hardware Attached on Top). It attaches to the top of the computer and allows it to be powered through the Ethernet cable that is also connecting the computer to the internet.

Current reccomendation?
