Pico Breakout Garden Base
£8.34 ex VAT
An easy, solderless, swappable way to use breakouts with your Raspberry Pi Pico - add up to six Pimoroni breakouts (4 x I2C and 2 x SPI) to the sturdy slots and get coding and creating!
Pico Breakout Garden Base sits underneath your Pico and lets you connect up to six of Pimoroni breakouts to it. Whether it's environmental sensors so you can keep track of the temperature and humidity in your office, a whole host of little screens for important notifications and readouts, and, of course, LEDs.
As well as a labelled landing area for your Pico, there's also a full set of broken out Pico connections, in case you need to attach even more sensors, wires, and circuitry. They've thrown in some rubber feet to keep the base nice and stable and to stop it from scratching your desk, or there are M2.5 mounting holes at the corners so that you can bolt it onto a solid surface if you prefer.
The six sturdy black slots are edge connectors that connect the breakouts to the pins on your Pico. There are two slots for SPI breakouts and four slots for I2C breakouts. Because I2C is a bus, you can use multiple I2C devices at the same time, providing they don't have the same I2C address
As well as being a handy way to add functionality to your Pico, Breakout Garden is also very useful for prototyping projects without the need for complicated wiring, soldering, or breadboards, and you can grow or change up your setup at any time.
