RE: Possible Shield Requirements Analysis
Sleep mode and power management are two things we have to deal with our electronic calipers at work stead rest

This electronic system measures the quill travel in the steady rest and displays it on an LCD. In the mill/lathe we can not power it by wire. So a rechargeable battery has to do it. There is no on/off switch because the user will forget it anyway. So we switch it off completely after some minutes to avoid a battery damage. When pressing (the only) button it comes to live again.

First off all you need a circuit which can switch on and off all main consumers. This could also be used when you are working only with 500 mA USB power to switch off all the hungry muscles.

Additional we should watch the battery Voltage and switch off if to deep.

What else of power management do we need?

If we make thinks common on one side maybe more people will/can follow. If you write "ARDUINO" many flies will "detect" it ;-)

My two MC where only a brain storming idea - and didn't came out of an power request/need
