Design your own Bonnet or pHAT, attach custom circuitry and otherwise dress your Pi Zero with this jaunty prototyping Bonnet kit!

To add to the Adafruit Bonnet party, Adafruit have this Perma-Proto inspired plug in daughter board. It has a grid of 0.1" prototyping soldering holes for attaching chips, resistors, LED, potentiometers and more. The holes are connected underneath with traces to mimic the solderless breadboards you're familiar. There's also long power strips for +3V, +5V and Ground connections to the Pi. Near the top Adafruit break out nearly every pin you could want to connect to the Pi (#26 didn't quite make the cut).

The Perma-Proto Bonnet comes with a printed circuit board and a single 2x20 GPIO Header for Raspberry Pi to put your Perma-Proto on top of your Raspberry Pi Zero (like a nice little bonnet...). Unlike our Perma-Proto HATs, this design does not include an EEPROM, so you can 'stack' it with other Bonnets and pHATs without worrying about an EEPROM address collision.

You can customize your Perma-Proto setup using a standard 2x20 stacking header or extra tall 2x20 stacking header. You can also swap out the 2x20 header with a slim 2x20 type if you want it to sit closer to the Pi, or an extra tall one if you want it to sit above the USB/Ethernet ports.

A bit of light soldering is required to attach the header to the PCB but it's easy work.

This bonnet is designed for use with Raspberry Pi Zero but you can put on top of any Raspberry Pi with a 2x20 connector, it will just not stick out as far. They also offer a full 'HAT' sized version for Pi A+, B+, Pi 2 & 3.

Raspberry Pi Zero not included!

  • Mass SD card Image Writer
  • We've built a mass SD card writer using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, some USB hubs and SD card readers. This beast has enough ports to write 49 SD cards at once! At Core Electronics, sometimes logistics hang-ups mean that suppliers cannot meet our demand for pre-flashed SD cards. During these periods we have to pick up the slack by manually imaging blank SD cards we source ourselves. Of course, this is a super-tedious process, and ...

    I'll be buying more of these as I need them. Great little product. I like the power and ground rails and the fact that nearly all the GPIO pins are broken out and easily accessible. (Posted on 5/10/2017)

    I really like these Pi Zero prototyping boards. Fantastic quality and finish. I have used a couple of these stacked to pull together multiple sensors, connectors and components into one neat, solid package for a project. (Posted on 20/09/2017)
