MICROSTACK is a framework of cross platform accessories that add functions to your designs through the use of cross platform module boards and platform specific adapter boards. Adapters to various platforms, starting with Raspberry Pi, add a common physical interface for connecting Microstack accessory module boards that are reuseable between designs and platforms.
MICROSTACK GPS features the L80 ultra slim POT(Patch on Top) module with an embedded 15x15mm patch antenna, this MICROSTACK module adds GPS positioning functions to all platforms compatible with the Microstack framework. This space-saving design makes L80 become the perpect module for the miniature devices. Adopted by LCC package and integrated with patch antenna, L80 has exceptional performance both in acquisition and tracking.
The Gertbot is a motor/power controller board for the Raspberry-Pi. The strength of the board is that it has its own CPU which frees up the Raspberry-Pi from a lot of intense computations and will take care of all the real time requirements. All you have to do is give it high level commands. Like: Board 2, Motor 1, take 2432 steps at 67 Hz. Even giving those commands is done for you using the free GUI which comes with it!
The Power Battery Pack holds 8 AA batteries to extends the life and allow for mobility of your BrickPi, or GoPiGo (please note: GoPiGo & BrickPi base kit and starter Kit already includes a power battery pack). This should only be ordered separately as a spare part.
MICROSTACK is a family of reusable accessory boards with a common framework consisting of form factor and interface connections that work across various different single board computer(SBC) platforms through the use of platform specific base boards (adapter boards) starting with Raspberry Pi.
MICROSTACK ADAPTER BOARD works with the Raspberry Pi to allow for two Microstack module boards to connect and work with Raspberry Pi in a easy and quick manner. Microstck boards do not interface directly with a SBC platform but through a base board like the MICROSTACK adapter board.
The PivotPi Base Kit is perfect for getting started with animated robot projects! Code anything in your world to move with 4 small servo motors and 2 large, powerful ones. This is a kit that includes the PivotPi board, battery pack, 2 large servo motors and 4 small servo motors. Now you can program your robotics, automation, and art projects to move!
The VOLT+ Amplifier is a standalone digital amplifier that will drive two 50w speakers. It is a Class D Amplifier with 90% Power efficiency and 102dB Signal to Noise Ratio. It requires a 19 Volt Power Supply to operate.
The Motion Sensor allows your GrovePi or GoPiGo robot car to detect motion and react based on what happens! Connect the camera to it too and take a picture of anyone that comes to your door! Cable included. Connect a Motion Sensor to your Raspberry Pi!
Add colours to your CodeBug by connecting a chain of GlowBugs. You can set each GlowBug to flash or glow any colour. Strew them across your desk, sew them onto fabrics. Wrap them around your Christmas tree or sew them on your Christmas jumper!
The PiMoroni Unicorn Hat is an 8×8 array of super-bright LEDs. It is ideal for mood-lighting, 8×8 pixel art, persistence of vision effects, status indications, or just blasting colour into your surroundings. It is compatible with Raspberry Pi 2, B+, and A+, has a Python API and plugs straight onto the GPIO pins.
This add-on board for the CodeBug allows you to add colour to your creations. Each of the 9 LEDs can be programmed to display different colours as required. This board is ideal for creating colourful patterns or even placed on top of a Christmas tree.
The Sound Sensor is a microphone that allows your GrovePi or GoPiGo robot car to listen to sound strength, so you can control it to take a picture or move around based on changes in noise! Cable included. Connect a Sound Sensor to your Raspberry Pi!
The PiMoroni Piano hat has 16 touch sensitive buttons, 13 (a full octave) piano keys an instrument cycle button and 16 LED’s. It comes completely assembled and has Python libraries with documentation and examples.
The MICROSTACK ACCELEROMETER provides easy, plug and play integration and development for designs requiring a accelerometer function to all platforms compatible with the Microstack framework. The Acceleration sensor features a MMA8491Q is a low voltage, 3-axis low-g accelerometer in a 3x3mm QFN package that can accommodate two configurations, acting as either a 45° tilt sensor or a digital output 14-bit ±8g accelerometer with I2C bus, and connects to the MicroStack Baseboard.
The Sound Sensor is a microphone that allows your GrovePi or GoPiGo robot car to listen to sound strength, so you can control it to take a picture or move around based on changes in noise! Cable included.
The PiMoroni Explorer HAT mounts on top of the Raspberry Pi and provides coloured LED’s, capacitive inputs and outputs, a mini breadboard, and 5v powered inputs and outputs. It has an easily available full python library, documentation and examples.
