Design your own Pi HAT, attach custom circuitry and otherwise dress your Pi A+, B+, or Pi 2 with this jaunty prototyping HAT kit.

To kick off the Adafruit HAT 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 didnt quite make the cut).

This is just the basic version of Adafruit's Perma-Proto HAT.  It 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 (like a nice little hat...) This version does not come with an EEPROM so you can 'stack' it with other HATs 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 hat is only compatible with the Raspberry Pi A+, B+ or Pi 2! It will not work with the Raspberry Pi Model A or B.

Adafruit's initial version has the +3V and +5V markings in blue, and the GND markings in red, future orders will have these colors swapped to better match a solderless breadboard

    • Rain Gauge Data Logger
    • Summary A Raspberry Pi 3B is used to collect digital counts from an electronic rain gauge (1mm of rain per reed switch closure by magnetic see-saw). It has been running without issues for over 12 months. A UPS powers the Pi so it is immune from short power glitches. The total count is displayed on an LCD screen with reset and inc/dec test buttons. “To HTML” and “To LCD” routines are also included to simp...
    • Television Media Centre
    • Introduction: I have a flat screen television that is about 7 years old that I purchased before Smart TVs were commonly available. What I wanted to achieve with My Pi project was to turn my slightly old TV into a media centre. I wanted to play music through my TV as well as play saved movies and stream internet content. It was important for me to be able to stream ABC iView and SBS On Demand as they provide a free service and ...
    • GraviTrack Enhancements - Lights and Sound
    • Introduction Searching for solar panels and related items on the Core Electronics website; I came across the Solarbotics GraviTrack Marble Machine Kit. I thought the kit would be a good educational tool for the grandkids. The kit was a hit, but the power switch was hard to access at the back of the machine and it only turned on and off. I had been experimenting with programmable RGB LEDs, Piezo speakers and a Light dependent re...
    • 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 ...

      Great prototyping board for getting your circuits up and running quickly and easily. Comes with a header that makes connecting to the Raspberry Pi a piece of cake! (Posted on 17/01/2019)

      I used one of these hats and a Pi 3B+ to make a controller that uses a 12 bit ADC. Voltages are measured via resistor divider circuits for the 12 volt general purpose battery and the nominally 48 volt battery bank. Current (+/- 300 amps) from the solar panels to the battery bank is determined via 2 voltage measurements. A relay is used to reset a BMS (battery management system). I'm very impressed with how much the hat design helped. (Posted on 16/01/2019)

      A nice and neat way to prototype circuits on a Pi. Soldering to the 5V pins allows easy supply of power (if you don't want to use the micro-USB connector, but be carefull!) (Posted on 30/01/2018)

      A fantastic little prototyping board. Nice quality. Allows you to easily put together a neat and solid prototype. The slot for the camera cable and cutaway for the display cable are nice touches. (Posted on 4/09/2017)
