Product Description

WHAT AM I?

Breakout board for the Raspberry Pi. I make it easy to connect electronics.

- I'm compact. Really compact. I add less than 2mm to the height of your Raspberry Pi and 1mm to to width.
- I have well labelled pins, grouped together logically, including GPIO, I2C, SPI, UART and power.
- I have female headers - you can poke jumpers right in.
- I have lots of GND and 5V pins - you need those a lot.
- I'm easy to make. A good project to learn to solder with. 
- I'm low cost.
- I'm fully open source hardware. Fork me, tweak me, share me.

WHY A KIT?

We love electronics kits for a multitude of reasons - they are fun to put together, you get a sense of achievement at the end of it, they are great for learning about soldering and electronics and many many more reasons...

At Pi Supply we are quite keen on the whole education and fun aspect of the Raspberry Pi and computing and electronics in general, so we feel that a kit is much more worthwhile to all of our backers.

However, you don't need to be a soldering god or an electronics pro to put our kits together - we make sure they are simple enough even for absolute beginners to put together.

ABOUT THE DESIGN

The toughest part of the design was making it fit inside a Raspberry Pi. The existing Raspberry Pi headers actually go all the way through the board and it sits approximately 2mm above the Raspberry Pi (very close). It's almost as if it is part of the original board. Because it sits so close to the Raspberry Pi, care has been taken to ensure that the thru-hole components avoid components on the Raspberry Pi board (so they don't short them out), and to avoid restricting air getting to the main ARM processor.
