What is a Raspberry Pi HAT?
HAT stands for “Hardware attached on top”. It is a new hardware specification for add-one modules for the new Raspberry Pi model B+. HATs have several advantages compared to older add-on modules for the Raspberry Pi. No soldering is required, just plug it onto the Raspberry Pi. A significant feature of the Pi HAT is that it allows the Raspberry Pi B+ to detect and identify the HAT and configure all GPIO’s and drivers for the board. This helps in maintaining an easy user experience.
Which are the top Raspberry Pi HATs and pHATS?
A few top pHATs are:
The Sense HAT has an 8×8 RGB LED matrix, a five-button joystick and includes the following sensors; Gyroscope, Accelerometer, Magnetometer, Temperature, Barometric pressure and Humidity
Raspberry Pi POE HAT:
The POE Raspberry Pi HAT is used to power the Raspberry Pi via an Ethernet cable, removing the need for a separate power supply, an ideal solution for embedded and IoT projects.
Adafruit 16-Channel PWM/Servo HAT:
Adafruit 16-Channel PWM Servo HAT, which can control multiple servos simultaneously. It can work with any Raspberry Pi and can control up to 5V servos and accepts 3.3V level signals.
The pHAT has dual DAC amplifiers, 3W per channel, two push fit speaker terminals, mono and stereo options, 16 RBG LED pixels for use with VU meters, push buttons, software installers, and Python libraries.
Flick Hat 3D Tracking And Gesture Sensor Board For Raspberry Pi:
This HAT is compatible with Raspberry Pi 3, Raspberry Pi 2, Raspberry Pi B+ and Raspberry Pi A+. It includes 3D Tracking technology via MGC3130 chipGesture sensing range of up to 15cmOffers touch and tap sensing
How many HATs can be stacked on a Raspberry Pi?
HAT’s are designed with an intention not to be stacked. Although you have an option of stacking upto 62 HAT’s and not have an address collision for upto 992 PWM outputs. For multiple stacking of HAT’s you will need to provide power and write code for all those outputs. They can all share the same SDA/SCL pins without any problem.
What does a sense HAT do?
The Sense HAT has an 8×8 RGB LED matrix, a five-button joystick and includes the following sensors:Gyroscope, Accelerometer, Magnetometer, Temperature, Barometric pressure and Humidity. If you are interested in recording both positioning and environmental data, the Sense HAT is a famous choice. Containing many sensor ICs, the Sense HAT can record orientation, acceleration, pressure, humidity, and temperature. The whole board can easily be programmed using Python, thanks to the AstroPi libraries.
