A nifty little breakout from our friends at Pimoroni that lets you access all of the GPIO pins while also running a HAT on your Raspberry Pi Model A+ or B+. The Pimoroni Black HAT Hack3r is ideal for debugging your HAT projects or combining a HAT with other circuits.
HAT spec landing area with PCB standoffs
Includes 40 pin GPIO ribbon cable
All GPIO pins labelled with function, BCM pin number, physical pin number
Rubber non-slip feet
4 mounting holes
Comes un-assembled in kit form
The inspiration for the Black HAT Hack3r comes from the Pimoroni people debugging new HAT designs but finding it so useful that they turned it into a product!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
