The Angstrom Power v1.0 board is a minimalist PCB for powering the AtomicPi SBC. I designed this board so I could use a USB C cable to power my AtomicPi. An earlier version of this board included a PCIe 6-pin power connector and voltage regulation circuit (12VDC to 5VDC), but I eliminated it to reduce size and cost. Instead of using a 12VDC power supply I had, I decided to use a COTs 5-port power bank that delivers up to 3A at 5V per USB port. I ordered and soldered up 4 of these boards to power a 4 AtomicPi cluster.
