Hi, using the X86 board, we tested the different possibility to boot up the board, and that works fine with for instance USB C PD source like Yeti 200X ( Very big but for testing fine) battery powered UPS.
We have a Windows application IoT solution we run at Power On starts fine also with Auto Start in Windows. But we are struggling with the Power Down. How can we initialize a power down of the X86 board from the application for instance when power drops, ( still using the USB C power source).
+12V supply------( UPS device Yeti 200x)------USB C PD--------------X86 board
We would like to find a way to look for any signal or source to control our windows system to switch off instead of pure remove the USB C power in that case we will have issues with the file system next reboot and possible loose data. Any ideas are welcomed.
Also we are looking for a “micro UPS” to add in, instead of a large UPS device that can handle the shutdown, if we can find a way when main power is lost, that can support the board during boot down i safe way.
