We do magical things with Power (with a Raspberry Pi as our assistant!)
Alchemy Power Inc.
A half size, double layer, powered bread board. 5V is normally provided to the 5V bus on the board. When connected to the Pi, 1) Pi-BB can power the Pi from the micro-USB connector.
2) Pi-BB provides 3.3V and 5V power from the Pi.
Needed a bread board for connecting breakout boards such as a Real Time Clock, GPS module etc. See pictures.
1) Half-Size powered breadboard. Uses USB power, or Power from Pi.
2) Dual layer 30 columns x 10 rows or a total of 300 connection points. Ideal for connecting peripherals or other breakout boards.
3) Same dimension as a Raspberry Pi 2 or Pi 3.
4) The 40-pin M-F Raspberry Pi header is soldered on to the Pi-BB board. This allows Pi-BB to be connected to a Raspberry Pi as a HAT or used as a stand-alone breadboard using a 40 pin (2x20) cable for connections.
5) A Raspberry Pi 40 pin header and solder connect points on the board as a mirrored header. Allows connections to all pins on the Pi. Note - one row of these pins are not dual layer to prevent shorts during soldering.
6) Standard 0.1 inch or 2.54 mm spacing (same spacing as a breadboard). 1mm drill hole, 2mm via – makes it convenient to attach resistors, diodes, Integrated Circuits (IC), IC holders, breakout boards and more. Dual layer makes it easy to solder. Soldering also provides mechanical rigidity unlike traditional bread boards using jumper wires.
7) LED indicator shows when the power is on. LED can be turned off using the LED jumper on the board (see pictures).
8) USB Power – Power the Raspberry Pi and the peripherals from a single USB Power-in Port. Optionally, power only the electronics on the board without connecting to the Pi (5V only). Ideal for use as a breadboard using commonly available USB power sources.

We recognize our top users by making them a Tindarian. Tindarians have access to secret & unreleased features.
We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
Percy Kawas is the founder, CEO, chief Alchemist, main geek ..... of Alchemy Power Inc. (API), a company started to collect power from the wind in an efficient manner leveraging Bernoulli’s principles. The XPS-1600 is the first product which meets that goal. Measuring the performance on the XPS-1600 and my familiarity with Unix+software/hardware led me to use the Raspberry Pi. I loved the fact that the Raspberry Pi is a low cost Linux Computer, with access to GPIOs and other capabilities. It amazes me how the user community have used this product in many different ways!!!
Percy has also designed and implemented several hardware and software projects. The most recent ones can be found on API website and on Tindie. Percy has worked at large companies like AMD, Cisco, SynOptics (Bay Networks/Nortel/gone-under) and created multiple startups. Percy has also been an independent consultant for several years, taught courses at UC Berkeley extension and other places. Percy loves to referee soccer, field hockey, read, watch Nature and Science programs, hike and travel.
