Would you like

  • to add a 5V circuit and not worry about the different voltage levels of the Raspberry Pi?
  • add your own components by soldering, for more permanent solution than breadboarding?
  • to protect your Raspberry Pi from GPIO circuits with up to 15kV ESD protection?
  • an easier way to connect your small circuit to the Raspberry Pi?
  • several tutorials to build up your ability to interface with the Raspberry

Our GPIO Expansion Board Series for the Raspberry PI can Help

Boards features are -

  • Fully bi-directional GPIO expansion on all GPIO lines transparently
  • Level Translation between 3.3V Raspberry Pi and your 5V circuit
  • Isolation of Raspberry Pi and your circuit when the Raspberry Pi is turned off or whilst being connected1
  • ESD protection between your circuit and Raspberry Pi of up to 15kV
  • Connector mounted on board for direct connection to Raspberry Pi no extra cable to make
  • Interface and level translation circuit already on the board
  • Prototyping area of 0.1 inch matrix holes to solder your components to
    • All GPIO pins available as Matrix holes labelled in groups for easy connection
    • +5V and GND matrix of holes top and bottom of card for easy power wiring
    • Matrix holes laid out with groups of 3 matrix holes connected together to save on wires and strip board cutting
  • See images of boards in product range and in Product Brief PDF document to see what we mean about labelling and connected matrix holes
  • I2C Connector can be added, so you can daisy chain boards together or interface to your I2C device that has to be a distance away.

More details available in the Product brief PDF document

Products are made up boards, some kits will be kit of parts to add to a made up breakout board to match the tutorials that will be available here and with the kits.
