The Raspberry Pi Build HAT is an add-on board designed in collaboration with LEGO® Education to make it easy to control LEGO® Technic motors and sensors with Raspberry Pi computers.

It provides four connectors for LEGO Technic motors and sensors from the LEGO® Education SPIKETM Portfolio. The available sensors include a distance sensor, a colour sensor, and a force sensor. The angular motors come in a range of sizes and include integrated encoders that can be queried to find their position.

The Build HAT fits all Raspberry Pi computers with a 40-pin GPIO header, including — with the addition of a ribbon cable or other extension device — Raspberry Pi 400. Connected LEGO Technic devices can easily be controlled in Python, alongside standard Raspberry Pi accessories such as a camera module.

The Raspberry Pi Build HAT power supply, available separately, is designed to power both the Build HAT and Raspberry Pi computer along with all connected LEGO Technic devices.

  • Controls up to four LEGO Technic motors and sensors included in the SPIKE Portfolio, along with those from the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Robot Inventor kit and most other LEGO devices that use an LPF2 connector
  • Fits onto any Raspberry Pi computer with a 40-pin GPIO header
  • Easy-to-use Python library to control your LEGO Technic devices
  • Onboard Raspberry Pi RP2040 microcontroller manages low-level control of LEGO Technic devices
  • DC power connector: 2.1mm barrel jack, centre positive
  • Requires an external 8V ±10% DC power source - like the Raspberry Pi Build HAT Power Supply, or a 7.5V battery pack – to power the Build HAT, Raspberry Pi computer (except Raspberry Pi 400), and connected LEGO Technic devices
