A sensor needs 5 v


Im using LSS05 sensor with Diddyborg v2 and thunderborg ,
which needs 5v to operate ( is not working in 3v3)
is there any ways to get 5v from Diddyborg v2 and thunderborg.

You can get access to 5V pins from the 6-pin header at the top of the ThunderBorg:

If the sensor is using 5V logic signals you will probably need a circuit to change between 5V and 3.3V. Please be aware that the Raspberry Pi GPIO pins are not designed to tolerate 5V levels and can be damaged if they get more than 3.3V! See here.

it is the thing i needed.
