Raspberry Pi HATs

Raspberry Pi HATs are an essential element to the Raspberry foundation ecosystem. These are the expansion boards that in Arduino world would be called shields, but given the power of the Pi very often open even broader range of applications. Raspberry Pi HATs have 40 pin GPIO pinout allowing to put them on on virtually all the Raspberry boards. The shields for Raspberry Zero format are usually denoted as pHATs. Given backward compatibility of Raspberry boards all HATs should work with Raspberry Pi 4 series, however we haven´t tested most of them, so if you want to get a HAT for your new Raspberry please look for specific information in product description or reach out to us directly.

Types of Raspberry Pi HATs

HATs primary to types could be split in input (sensors), output (actuators) and adapter boards, however many of them actually combines all of these functions (especially IoT focused HATs). The key categories by application would include most likely motor/ servo boards (enabling movement), sensor boards (enabling collecting information about board environment including temperature, pressure, current location, gestures, light and many others), communication (across the range of protocols from bluetooth to WiFi), audio and display HATs. One thing is sure and that is that no matter what project you have come up with, there potentially is a board for that already.

Raspberry Pi HATs key providers

Similarly to Arduino, there is a range of producers supporting Raspberry with their own designs of shields with the most recognized being Pimoroni, Waveshare and PiHut or JustBoom. Additionally, there is a wide range of offering from generalists such us Adafruit, Sparkfun, Seed and Pololu. We benefit from several official distribution agreements with the most renowned providers and for the others offer the most popular products. No matter the provider we always try to provide the best products in the competitive prices. Look through the category and our producer pages to learn more.

Resources for Raspberry Pi HATs

The developers of accessories for Raspberry Pi offer full technical support and range of materials for the boards and HATs including Python libraries and launch tutorials. Additionally, Solectro team works on providing our proprietary materials on interesting projects and tutorials for the Raspberry boards. Stay alert and check our offering and tutorial sections.
