RPi5 PD Power



The RPi 5 PD Power expansion board is designed to enhance the functionality of the Raspberry Pi 5 by providing Power Delivery (PD) capabilities. Named "RPi 5 PD Power," this expansion board supports an Always-ON switch, enabling automatic startup of the Raspberry Pi upon power restoration. Additionally, it offers the convenience of manual power control through a push-button mechanism.


  • Power Input Options:
  • USB PD: Default 15V input for Power Delivery.
  • DC Interface: 9-12V input through a dedicated DC interface.
  • Power Output Options:
  • USB-C Output: Delivers 40W power at 5V/8A MAX via a USB-C port.
  • USB PD 3.0 Interface: Provides 5.15V@5A output through Power Delivery 3.0.
The DC interface and the USB-C interface are mutually exclusive; they cannot be used simultaneously. Please choose either the DC interface for power input or the USB-C interface, ensuring only one connection at a time. Attempting to use both interfaces concurrently may result in functionality issues or damage to the RPi 5 PD Power expansion board.
