PIOstack1: LAN & USB for Pi Zero #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Via Luani – translated from German with Google Translate
Good news: The first prototype of the PIOstack 1 is built and works!
Assembled with a Raspberry Pi Zero, the package measures 79mm x 39mm x 26mm (LxBxH), so it is only about half as big as a Raspberry Pi B +!
Because my Raspberry Pi Zero still was not delivered (almost two months!), I could only test the LAN9514 chipset. With the Windows 7 drivers everything worked immediately, the board logs itself as a combination unit with four USB and an Ethernet interface on the laptop. A first test with the LAN95xx utility complained about the empty EEPROM.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
