GPIO Male Hammer Header Kit – Solderless Raspberry Pi Connector – Male Header + Installation Jig

If your soldering isn’t quite up to scratch, or you just don’t own a soldering iron yet, then these nifty hammer headers from Pimoroni might be just what you need.

This version includes one piece of male header along with some crafty little retaining nubbins to grip tightly into the holes on the PCB. If you need both male and female headers, check out this version!

Absolutely no soldering required! All that’s needed is a few gentle taps with a hammer and bazinga! Your header is securely attached to your Pi Zero.

TLV62569 3.3V Buck Converter Breakout – 3.3V Output 1.2A Max

This little buck converter based on the TLV62569 3.3V is super handy, taking up to 5.5V input and providing a 3.3V output with up to 1.2A continuous current. It’s great for supplying power to popular 3.3V voltage circuits from a range of battery or power options. This chip provides up to 1.2 Amp load current continuously across the entire input voltage range of 3.4 to 5.5V. It’s not a huge range but does cover LiPoly batteries, 3 alkalines, and USB power.

Great for your portable project, we made this “pin compatible” with the LM1117-3.3V TO-220 chip so you can swap it in for better performance (90-95% efficiency!) There’s also an ENable pin, tie it low to shut down the output completely.

Retractable Stacking Banana Plug Cable – Red 0.5 meter long

Why are bananas never lonely? Because they hang around in bunches!

A lot of power supplies, multimeters, and other benchtop equipment use standard 4mm banana plugs to connect this-to-that. When you need more, we now stock them! These are handy stackable and retractable Banana Plug cables! The retracting plastic protection bit on the end will automagically disappear when plugged into a device, but will prevent accidental shorting to boards or other cables when draped along your desk.

These are handy stackable and retractable Banana Plug cables! The retracting plastic protection bit on the end will automagically disappear when plugged into a device, but will prevent accidental shorting to boards or other cables when draped along your desk.

This is the half-meter-long black version.

ADS1015 12-Bit ADC – 4 Channel with Programmable Gain Amplifier – STEMMA QT / Qwiic

For microcontrollers without an analog-to-digital converter or when you want a higher-precision ADC, the ADS1015 provides 12-bit precision at 3300 samples/second over I2C. The chip can be configured as 4 single-ended input channels or two differential channels. As a nice bonus, it even includes a programmable gain amplifier, up to x16, to help boost up smaller single/differential signals to the full range. We like this ADC because it can run from 2V to 5V power/logic, can measure a large range of signals and it’s super easy to use. It is a great general purpose 12 bit converter.

The chip’s fairly small so it comes on a breakout board with ferrites to keep the AVDD and AGND quiet. Interfacing is done via I2C. The address can be changed to one of four options (see the datasheet table 5) so you can have up to 4 ADS1015’s connected on a single 2-wire I2C bus for 16 single ended inputs.

Comes with a bit of 0.1″ standard header in case you want to use it with a breadboard or perfboard. Four mounting holes for easy attachment.
