Adafruit Perma-Proto HAT for Pi Mini Kit – with EEPROM

Issue 21 — HackSpace magazine gives the Adafruit Perma-Proto HAT for Pi Mini Kit – with EEPROM a 10/10 score, saying it’s a great prototyping HAT.

There are a few prototyping HATs out there for Raspberry Pi, but only this one benefits from the long-standing history and collective knowledge of the people at Adafruit. This addition to the HAT family of boards is another variant of its Perma-Proto ecosystem. It’s a well-thought-out PCB that allows for easy prototyping of through-hole and surface-mount components.

At first glance, you might think it’s just a prototyping board, but it’s more than that and very thoughtfully designed. The kit includes the PCB, a 2×20 GPIO header, and a blank 24C32 I2C EEPROM soldered on and connected to the EEDAT/EECLK lines, making development of a new HAT for your Raspberry Pi much easier.

Customise it how you like and, for this low price, you might want to consider adding a few of them (or the version without the EEPROM) to your hardware stash.

8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

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.
