When I used Raspberry Pi to learn Python and completed the GPIO application, I used the breadboard to build the experimental circuit, but I felt some troubles: Every time I make a new GPIO application, there are many repetitive circuits to be built using the breadboard to make the circuit, such as LCD display, buttons, gravity acceleration, temperature sensor, audio playback, etc. At the same time, these circuits are bulky and confusing. So I thought about whether I could make a pHAT board to combine these circuits and keep the PCB size compact. This way I can learn more effectively and create new GPIO applications faster. So I discussed this possibility and plan with my friends...
We decided to use the layout that like a game console handle to make RPi-Spark pHAT, after our discussion and design. We think it will make more fun with learning RPi-Spark, so you can use it to develop python games, and use it to create interesting apps that belong to you. At the same time, We have reserved 19 GPIO expansion pads for easy access to more sensors and expansion circuits. You can solder a pin header, This will allow RPi-Spark directly into the breadboard. For instructions on how to use the GPIO expansion pad, refer to our tutorial: How to use GPIO expansion pads?.
We make RPi-Spark SDKs that let developers focus on what applications RPi-Spark does, and don't rewrite basic driver code. Use the SDK be better combined and shared of RPi-Spark app, join our community and share your RPi-Spark apps and recommendations.
We have write a complete tutorial for development of RPi-Spark, and you can easily learn how to use RPi-Spark pHAT.
