Farnell is making available the Raspberry Pi Build HAT and power supply, further increasing its range of Raspberry Pi products.

The Raspberry Pi Build HAT has been developed to enable Raspberry Pi computers to be integrated into the LEGO building system, offering students, teachers, novice electronics enthusiasts and makers much greater flexibility and affordability when it comes to designing new projects.

The Build HAT and the LEGO building system can be used to create robots, cars, games, a smart house - even an egg-laying chicken.

The Raspberry Pi Build HAT is the second Raspberry Pi product to be based on the RP2040 microcontroller. The LEGO Maker Plate is available separately from LEGO retailers and allows users to easily integrate the Raspberry Pi computers into the LEGO building system.
