The Pimoroni Touch pHAT has six capacitive touch buttons, each with a bright white LED, so you can add a touch interface to your Raspberry Pi. While it is shaped and sized to match a Pi Zero, it works great with any Pi with 2x20 connector. You can even use a dry erase pen to write on the pads to label their function.

The pHAT features a CAP1166 capacitive touch and LED driver chip that is read over I2C. Each pad has a matching LED that can be controlled independently. The LEDs have been under-mounted and shine through exposed sections of the PCB to give a pleasing yellow-green glow and a completely smooth top surface!

Use Touch pHAT as a controller for your robot, a controller for your Mote lights, a tiny drum machine, or use it to build a simple game where you have to taps the buttons to repeat the sequence of lights that just flashed.

  • 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 ...
