Mouser Electronics signs up Raspberry Pi, Arduino, micro:bit accessory provider
Pimoroni’s Raspberry Pi accessories include the Pibow case and a variety of HATs and pHATs that provide additional functionality to the Raspberry Pi and Raspberry Pi Zero boards. These HAT and pHATs include different LED matrices, gesture detection, musical instruments, and prototyping boards for creating new projects.
Mouser has also added the Pimoroni Picade PCB, an Arduino-compatible board for arcade-game projects. The board has a Microchip ATmega32U4 MCU and comes with the Arduino bootloader and Pimoroni software pre-installed. Screw-terminal contacts enable the addition of a four-direction joystick and up to 12 buttons, plus two 4-Ohm speakers driven by the onboard 3 W amplifier.
Pimoroni’s micro:bit-compatible products include the scroll:bit, pin:bit, and an accessories kit. The scroll:bit is a small display board with 119 bright white LEDs for scrolling text, animations, and graphs. The pin:bit is a tiny breadboard extension for prototyping new circuits. The micro:bit accessories kit consists of a switchable AAA battery pack and micro-USB cable for getting started with micro:bit.
