Description

Introducing the Inventor HAT Mini, a versatile motor, servo, and audio driver add-on board designed for Raspberry Pi enthusiasts. With this compact HAT, you can bring your mechanical inventions, creations, and contraptions to life!


Transform your Raspberry Pi into a robot, prop, kinetic sculpture, creepy automaton, or any other exciting moving creation. The Inventor HAT Mini makes it easy to drive motors with encoders, connect up to four servos, and add a speaker for sound effects.


Expandability is a key feature, with a pass-through header for stacking with other boards and four additional ADC-capable GPIO pins. These pins allow you to attach analog or digital sensors, buttons, LEDs, or other accessories. The HAT also includes 8 addressable RGB LEDs (Neopixels) for visual indicators.


To ensure a quick and hassle-free start, the Inventor HAT Mini comes with pre-soldered pin headers, a Qw/ST connector for breakout compatibility, and a fully featured Python library with helpful examples. Power users will appreciate the unpopulated external power input, enabling the use of higher voltage motors and servos (up to 10V).


Key Features:

  • Nuvoton microcontroller (MS51TC0AE) with built-in 16-bit PWM and 12-bit Analog to Digital Converter.
  • Header pins for connecting 3-pin hobby servos and GPIO (ADC capable).
  • Dual H-Bridge motor driver (DRV8833) with JST-SH connectors for motors with encoders.
  • MAX98357 3.2W I2S mono amplifier and 2-pin connector for attaching a speaker.
  • 8 addressable RGB LEDs/Neopixels for visual indicators.
  • User button for interaction.
  • Qw/ST connector for attaching breakouts.
  • Pass-through 40-pin header for stacking with other HATs.
  • Fully assembled - no soldering required.
  • Python library for easy programming.

Compatibility:

  • Compatible with all Raspberry Pi computers with a 40-pin header.
  • Especially neat fit on Raspberry Pi Zero boards.

Notes:

  • Measurements: 65mm x 30.5mm x 15.5mm (L x W x H, approx).
  • Extra broken-out headers for advanced users (unpopulated, soldering required).
  • Multiple power options for flexibility, including external power via a screw terminal block.
  • Direction indicators and motor features can be customized through back trace cutting.
