I am using:
- ATtiny10 w/ 10Ohm Resistor in series to drive Base of transistor
- Transistor is ZTX688B
- Vcc is 5V and 3A source
- Load is a Raspberry Pi connected to Collector
The ATtiny is programmed to turn on the Base for 10 seconds and then turn it off for 5 seconds. When I run the circuit it turns on briefly but only manages to 100-200mA (not enough to fully turn on the Pi. How can I make this work? The transistor is rated to handle 3A and up to 12V.
NOTE: I am also open to suggestions of replacing parts. I just need to control the Pis power supply with a MCU.
