PiJack is a HAT (yes, a proper HAT, not a pHAT!) add-on board for the Raspberry Pi Zero mini computer that makes connecting your Pi Zero to the Internet via Ethernet super simple. If you’re fed up with flaky WiFi and want your Pi Zero to be online all the time, then this HAT is for you!
PiJack is a neat little board with an Ethernet controller and standard RJ45 connector so you can hook your Pi up to your home or office network using standard Ethernet cables. PiJack is ready to go – there’s no special software or drivers to install. It works right out of the box with Raspbian – simply attach PiJack to your Pi’s GPIO header and plug it in!
10Mbps Ethernet connection
Two blinky LEDs for connection status
HAT-standard-compliant EEPROM makes setup automatic, works straight away with Raspbian!
Uses the Pi Zero’s GPIO pins, your USB connector is still free for something else!
Note: Pi Zero and Ethernet cable not included!
PiJack is well engineered and uses high quality components and connectors (that won’t snap off the first time you use it!). PiJack is built in the EU, and every board is tested to make sure it’ll work for you first time.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
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.

Brilliant idea. But what would make.it perfect is 802.3af PoE support …. even passive PoE would be good… then you can lose the power cable and have a single cable solution ? Can you consider this for version 2 ? Thanks.
Can the raspberry pi be powered from the Ethernet cable?
