We’re doffing our Mini Black HAT Hack3r for the evening because it’s showtime for Pimoroni’s pHAT Stack! This expansive breakout PCB offers 6 sets of 2×20 pin headers – one for connecting to your Pi and the other 5 for a plethora of HATs, pHATs or bonnets.
The combinations are endless… It’s perfect for your projects, displaying temperatures, times, etc. and becomes really useful when combined with other boards like the OLED Bonnet or Inky pHAT plus maybe an Enviro pHAT to display the sensor values.
Before you cobble your set-up, we recommend checking that your boards are all compatible with each other. Since the Raspberry Pi has a limited number of GPIO pins, there’s a strong chance your pins may clash. Take a looksie at Pinout’s cool experimental Raspberry Pi pinout configurator, and of course check the specification sheets, pinouts or datasheets for all your fancy add-ons.
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.
