Adafruit 1.2″ 8×8 LED Matrix Backpack

By popular request, you can now get our 8×8 LED backpacks without the LEDs! These backpacks feature an HT16K33 I2C LED driver, they’re simple and easy to use – you can use our very nice library for the backpacks to get running in under half an hour. If you’ve been eyeing matrix displays but hesitated because of the complexity, this is the solution you’ve been looking for!

Like our other LED backpacks, these are end-to-end stackable and by soldering the address jumpers on the back you can have up to 8 backpacks all sharing the same two I2C wires!

Adafruit GPIO Expander Bonnet – 16 Additional I/O over I2C – STEMMA QT / Qwiic

The Raspberry Pi is an amazing single board computer – and one of the best parts is that GPIO connector! 40 pins of digital goodness you can twiddle to control LEDs, sensors, buttons, radios, displays – just about any device you can imagine. This Adafruit GPIO Expander Bonnet will give you even more digital deliciousness – 16 more digital input/output pins are yours for any desire you have. The outputs are grouped into two 16-pin connectors that have a matching ground pin. You can set each pin to be a digital output (high or low) or as an input, with an internal pull-up if you like!

Simply pop the Bonnet on top of your Pi, the circuitry connects to the SDA/SCL I2C pins for control. The MCP23017 chip converts our Python commands to pin instructions.

Raspberry Pi 5 FPC Camera Cable – 22-pin 0.5mm to 15-pin 1mm – 500mm long

This 500mm long camera cable is specifically designed to work with the Raspberry Pi 5 series. Just plug it into your Pi 5’s camera port and then the other end into one of the official Pi Cameras for photo and video joy.

Raspberry Pi 5 provides two four-lane MIPI connectors, each of which can support either a camera or a display. These connectors use the same 22-way, 0.5mm-pitch “mini” FPC format as the Compute Module

Raspberry Pi 5 FPC Display Cable – 22-pin 0.5mm to 15-pin 1mm – 500mm long

Coming soon!

This 500mm long display cable is specifically designed to work with the Raspberry Pi 5 series.

Raspberry Pi 5 provides two four-lane MIPI connectors, each of which can support either a camera or a display. These connectors use the same 22-pin, 0.5mm-pitch “mini” FPC format as the Compute Module Development Kit, and require adapter cables to connect to the 15-pin, 1mm-pitch “standard” format connectors on Raspberry Pi’s current camera and display products.

Adafruit ADS7830 8-Channel 8-Bit ADC with I2C – STEMMA QT / Qwiic

Many microcontrollers have ADCs these days, for reading analog/resistive sensors like potentiometers, thermistors, LDR light sensors, etc. but sometimes you need MOAR! Or maybe you’re using a single board computer like a Raspberry Pi that has no ADCs at all!

The Adafruit ADS7830 8-Channel 8-Bit ADC with I2C is an affordable 8-channel ADC with I2C interface, so it’s easy to include with any platform. Wire up to the SDA/SCL pins plus power and ground, only four wires required. If you need more than 8 channels, there’s 2 address pins so you could have 4 x 8 = 32 total ADC channels with chain-able Stemma QT cables.
