SB Components recently came up with its latest product: BreadPi. a purpose hat for all Raspberry Pi systems. It is a crucial device that will add several new features to the Raspberry Pi. It is a shield that offers digital as well as analogue I/O functionalities along with a breadboard that adds hardware connections for multiple purposes like training, learning, and testing.
How is it used?
BreadPi happens to be a Raspberry Pi hat that extends the capabilities of Raspberry Pi. The best part is that the device doesn’t need any external power supply. It is simple and easy to use BreadPi just like all other multipurpose hats. It can be stacked over all other Raspberry Pi 40 pin models. Once you have stacked all, you get access to header pins located over the top of the board.
It is recommended to keep power unplugged prior to stacking. Once you are done, you will see all female headers heading over to male headers on the chosen Raspberry Pi board.
The makers suggest the designers to align BreadPi on Raspberry in a way that both female and male headers get placed right over each other. It will cover the Raspberry Pi over BreadPi, only ethernet and USB ports can be seen from the top.
Next, insert the BreadPi headers inside the Raspberry Pi pins. When all Raspberry Pi pins get covered, give the board a gentle push to ensure the connection is tight. The Raspberry Pi board can be powered after that.
Downloading and installation
The BreadPi resources can be availed in Python 3. Users can use the BreadPi with any programming language of their choice. To get started with BreadPi, you can make use of any GPIO module that is offered with Raspberry Pi. For further Pin description, please refer to the user manual of the product.
