NEW PRODUCT – Pimoroni Speaker pHAT for Raspberry Pi Zero


The Pimoroni Speaker pHAT crams an I2S DAC and mono amplifier, a tiny 8Ω 2W speaker, and a 10 LED bar graph all onto one teeny little pHAT. It’s the neatest way to add audio to your Pi project, and its beautiful artwork evokes an 80s boombox!

Pimoroni isn’t claiming audiophile sound quality, but it’s perfect for fun little projects where you want to add sound output – speech, notification sounds, or light music, for example.

Why not combine it with a little USB microphone to make a tiny voice-activated assistant in the style of Amazon’s Echo? Or set up a simple Flask API and send audio notifications to it from IFTTT with a simple HTTP request.

It comes as a kit, so you’ll have to solder on the female 40 pin header, and screw and solder the speaker on. Check out Pimoroni’s assembly guide for more details.

Features:

  • I2S audio DAC with 3W mono amplifier (MAX98357A)
  • Default output of 0.45W/26.5dB
  • 8Ω 2W Mylar speaker
  • Routed holes to channel sound
  • 10 bright white bar graph LEDs
  • SN3218 LED driver chip
  • Compatible with Raspberry Pi 3, 2, B+, A+, and Zero
  • Female header and speaker require soldering (includes a piece of bare wire to solder the speaker)

  1. I have this. Woo Hoo! I have it assembled and I believe I have the libraries installed, but I can’t seem to make anything happen. Are there any complete noobies guides out there to help make some music come out and the LEDs do something cool? I’ve been to the github, but just not sure what I’m missing.
