Ease the Raspberry-Pi prototyping with Analog and PWM capable hat - compatible with Gravity boards
This IO Expansion HAT provides easy access to digital, analog, I2C (also named IIC), PWM, UART and SPI ports of your Raspberry-Pi with an pretty easy to use connectors.
Please note that it brings 4 analog input to the Pi + 4 PWM outputs thanks to the STM32 microcontroler present on this hat.
Following the Gravity connexion principles, all connexions points are:
- provided at 2.54mm spacing connector
- with power and ground
- with easy to read labelling
This small board is perfect for Raspberry Pi Zero W (can also be used with standard Raspberry-Pi). The board leads out the I/O ports on Raspberry Pi I2C/UART/SPI but also breakout several Raspberry-Pi's digital I/O GPIO16~GPIO25.
The STM32 communicates with the Raspberry-Pi via the I2C bus. The DFRobot libraries allows the user to conveniently control the PWM output or read ADC input.
For each order, you will receive a IO Expansion HAT. Raspberry-Pi, cables, prototyping board not included.

About the gravity connection
The Gravity is a modular and plug and play electronic toolkit made for easy use (no soldering). Gravity is suited for any king of skill level and can be used with DFRobot board or with standard propotyping devices.
The Gravity sensor board features a JST connector and microcontroler side features a molex 2.54mm spacing female connector. The Gravity cable includes with the gravity module (the sensors) can also use the 2.54mm connector to connect the sensor directly on ANY KIND of microcontroler or prototyping materiel (glorious!).
To made it simple, the Gravity connector and expansion shields use color coded pins:
- Red & Black : +Vcc & Ground
- Blue : Analog input
- Green : Digital input/output
Gravity is even made simplier for kids with gravity expansion for Micro:bit since it feature the JST connectors on the both side of gravity cable (micro:bit side and sensor side). MicroPython addicted would be pleased with the Gravity Skin for Pyboard.
