Farnell makes available new Raspberry Pi Build HAT and power supply

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.

Farnell will be shipping the Raspberry Pi Build HAT and power supply from stock later this month.

Key product features include:

  • Raspberry Pi Build HAT combines the power of Raspberry Pi computing with hands-on learning experience of LEGO to create a fun and interactive learning experience for students, teachers and makers. The Build HAT is compatible with the most recent generation of LEGO Technic motors, and with sensors included in the LEGO Education SPIKE Prime portfolio. The Build HAT is easy to use from Python on the Raspberry Pi.
  • Raspberry Pi 48W Build HAT Power Supply is the official power supply for use with the Raspberry Pi Build HAT. Key specifications include a 110-240V AC input and a 8V DC, 6A output. The product features a 1.5m connecting cable.
