OnOff SHIM - external buttom for on/off?


#1

Hi,
sorry my bad english, (an old german boy ) -:)
First many thanks for the postings about OnOff SHIM.
I bought this one and it`s work fine.
But , one question:

Its possible to bring on an external buttom with the same funktion, and its possible to take some PIN`s of the PI 3 Board?

Thank`s for the help

best regards
Steffen

You can wire up your own button to the two solder pads next to the BTN on the board. You want a normally open momentary contact button. Something like this will work, https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/colourful-arcade-buttons or https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/mini-arcade-buttons.
The pinout is here, https://pinout.xyz/pinout/onoff_shim# You can use any of the other GPIO not used by the on off shim.

You could use those points if you wanted, the ones I was talking about are in the lower left, opposite corner, where it says Button. The two pads right under the word BUTTON.
