That new Raspberry Pi computer you just got has a row of 2×20 pin headers soldered on – those are the GPIO (general purpose input/output) pins and for those of us who like to hack electronics they are where the real fun is. By programming the Pi, you can twiddle those pins high or low, send and receive I2C and SPI data, and access the 3V and 5V power rails.
If you want to bridge those contacts out onto another PCB, you'll want this cable! It's 20cm long and has 40 socket & wire sets.
SHIM RTC is a battery backed up realtime clock and calendar add on board for Raspberry Pi that does not get in the way of other add on boards providing easy, plug and play integration and development for designs and/or applications requiring time stamps. Board communicates via I2C interface, supported by a back-up battery to ensure on-going timekeeping operation in power-down situation. Battery not included.
PiFace Real Time Clock means your Raspberry Pi always has the correct time. Furthermore, it’s that small you’ll hardly notice it’s there! You can slip it inside most cases and under, most add-on boards!
The Raspberry Pi Sense HAT is attached on top of the Raspberry Pi via the 40 GPIO pins. The Sense HAT has an integrated Gyroscope, Accelerometer, Magnetometer, Barometer, Temperature Sensor, Humidity Sensor, 5-button joystick and 8×8 LED matrix display that can be used for many different types of experiments, applications, and even games.
The PiFace Digital 2 add-on board for Raspberry Pi Model B+ connects to the Pi to the world around it. The PiFace Digital 2 includes 2 relays, 4 tactile switches, 8 digital inputs, 8 LED Indicators, a graphical emulator and support for hardware interrupts.
Extra-long and bendy, this is just like your classic Pi GPIO cable but 12″ (300mm) long and fitted through a tube so that it’s a little more flexible in all directions.
Please note: These cables come with strain-relief clips that make the connector a bit taller than ‘classic’ GPIO cables. If you want to fit the cable into a Pi enclosure you may need to remove the top clips by cutting them off gently with diagonal cutters/nippers and pulling the plastic off.
The PiFace Control and Display has been updated for the Raspberry Pi Model B+! It has a 16 character, two line display (16×2), 5 push-button tactile switches, a LED backlight, a 3-position navigation switch, and an IR Receiver. It comes with Python Libraries so you can control it, and has immediate uses in Internet Radio, Streaming media and embedded Applications.
The PIFACE IO Shim works with the Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi B+ with 40 GPIOs to duplicate the header pins when an add-on board is connected directly to the Raspberry Pi GPIO. The SHIM has two sets of plated thru holes in the same RPI GPIO configuration with the relative holes connected together. With one set of holes placed over the Raspberry Pi headers the other set of holes on the SHIM can accommodate header pins, wires, etc. to support the users application while not covering up the RPI header pins for additional add on boards.
Carberry aims to be a shield for Raspberry Pi microcomputers. Carberry represents the link between car electronics and Raspberry Pi, which allows the development of end-user applications, such as media centers, vehicle diagnostics, data logging, fleet management, tracking, blackboxes, burglar alarms, carputing, internet, and much more.
Give your Pi some reach with this GPIO extender cable, which has two matching connectors on the end of a 12″ (300mm) long gray cable. Plug one end into your Pi and the other end will have a boxed male header you can plug in a Pi Plate that is expecting to go onto a Pi. This cable is not compatible with the Raspberry Pi Model B+.
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 Piano 2.1 DAC for the Raspberry Pi and Sparky is an extremely high quality sound card with separate RCA outputs for left, right and subwoofer outputs. It connects to the KALI recoder for audio input, and can either output to your HiFi Amplifier, or to the VOLT Amplifier with speaker output.
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 VOLT Amplifier for the Raspberry Pi or Sparky is a digital amplifier that will drive two 50w speakers directly from your Raspberry Pi. This version is designed to directly connect to the Piano 2.1 DAC. If you require RCA in, please see the VOLT+.
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 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.
