Raspberry Pi 5 – 4 GB RAM

Coming soon! Sign up to be notified when these are in stock

The Raspberry Pi 5 is the newest Raspberry Pi computer, and the Pi Foundation knows you can always make a good thing better! And what could make the Pi 5 better than the 4? How about a faster processor, USB 3.0 ports, and an updated Gigabit Ethernet chip with PoE capability? Good guess – that’s exactly what they did!

The Raspberry Pi 5 is the latest product in the Raspberry Pi range, boasting 64-bit quad-core Arm Cortex-A76 processor running at 2.4GHz with built-in metal heatsink, USB 3 ports, dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless LAN, faster Gigabit Ethernet, and PoE capability via a separate PoE HAT.

This version comes with 4 GB of RAM, but there’s also an 8GB version if you like.

Official Raspberry Pi Foundation Raspberry Pi 5 Case + Fan

Coming soon! Note: may come in gothy black/grey once we get stock in

Keep your Raspberry Pi® 5 computer safe and snug in this solid ABS acrylic enclosure. You can even pick up the official active cooler to super-charge your Pi 5 projects and stay frosty even under computational intensity.

This case keeps your Pi secure, has labeled holes for connector access, and even comes with four little bumper feet. You can use all of the connectors on the edges of the Pi: microHDMI, USB-C power, Ethernet, and USB ports.

The updated case for Raspberry Pi 5 builds on the aesthetic of its Raspberry Pi 4 predecessor but adds a host of new usability and thermal-management features.

Official Raspberry Pi 5 Active Cooler

Coming soon!

The Raspberry Pi 5 Active Cooler is compatible with the Raspberry Pi 5 and the Raspberry Pi 5 Case. Designed for anyone who wants to push the performance of their Pi, as well as overclockers and other power users, it keeps your Raspberry Pi 5 at a comfortable operating temperature even when under heavy load thanks to both a mini heatsink that goes on top of your CPU and a fan that clips into the official Raspberry Pi 5 case.

Great for makers who wish to use the board uncased under continuous heavy load without throttling. It attaches to the board via two new mounting holes and connects to the same four-pin JST connector as the case fan.

Square RGB 666 TTL TFT Display – 3.4″ 480×480 with Touchscreen – TL034WVS05CT-B1477A

This is a screen for advanced hackers who like the look of a square TFT screen with tons of pixels. The 3.4″ square display has 480×48018-bit full-color pixels and is an IPS display, so the color looks great up to 80 degrees off-axis in any direction.

The TFT driver is ST7701S and uses both SPI and TTL RGB ‘dot clock’ data. The SPI is only for configuring the display – you cannot draw pixels over SPI! Also, despite having a 40-pin connector, it does not have the same pinout as standard ‘rectangular’ 800×480 (4.3″, 5″ or 7″) or 480×272 (4.3″) displays. It’s a new kind of beast for sure.

Rectangle Bar RGB TTL TFT Display – 3.7″ 240×960 – No Touchscreen – HD371001C40

Coming Soon!

This is a screen for advanced hackers who like the look of a loooooooong rectangular bar TFT screen with tons of pixels. The 3.7″ rectangular display has 240×960 18-bit full-color pixels and is an IPS display, so the color looks great up to 80 degrees off-axis in any direction.

This version does not have a touchscreen.

Adafruit VCNL4020 Proximity and Light Sensor – STEMMA QT / Qwiic

The VCNL4020 is a handy two-in-one sensor, with a proximity sensor that works from 0 to 200mm (about 7.5 inches) and light sensor with range of 0.26 to 16,000 lux.

We’ve all been there. That thing is close but how close? When you need to measure a small distance with reasonable accuracy, such as the rough height of particularly calm bumble bee, the VCNL4020 Proximity Sensor from Vishay can do that for you. If perchance you also needed to measure the amount of light at the same time, perhaps to let the bee to know if it’s time for bed, you’re in luck! The VCNL4020 can do that too (bumble bee not included, we tried putting it in the anti-static bag but it started buzzing in a threatening manner)
