Mouser stocking Pimoroni’s breakout boards for Raspberry Pi

Mouser Electronics is now stocking a variety of breakout boards from Pimoroni designed to enable additional functionalities for Raspberry Pi and Arduino boards..

The Pimoroni breakout boards offer useful functions such as audio output, sensors, and motor control.

Pimoroni breakout boards for Raspberry Pi, now available from Mouser Electronics, include the PIM476 1.3” SPI colour LCD breakout board, the PIM480 SGP30 sensor breakout board, and the PIM479 DRV8830 breakout board.

The PIM476 LCD breakout board offers a bright display and provides viewing in-plane switching (IPS) angles. The board runs up to 50 FPS, is compatible with all models of Raspberry Pi and Arduino, and features reverse polarity protection.

THE PIM480 SGP30 sensor board is based on the Sensirion multi-pixel gas sensor SGP, which measures total volatile organic compounds (TVOC) and equivalent carbon dioxide (eCO2) in indoor environments. The sensor board features reverse polarity protection, minimal drift through time, and Raspberry Pi-compatible pinout.

Mouser is also stocking the Pimoroni PIM479 DRV8830 breakout board, an H-bridge DC motor driver with a configurable current limit of 0.2 A or 1.0 A. The breakout board, which incorporates a Texas Instruments DRV8830 brushed DC motor driver, is bi-directional and speed-controllable, and incorporates four different I²C addresses that can be used simultaneously.
