The Raspberry Pi shield (BL0036) allows you to connect a Raspberry Pi PCB computer up to an E-blocks system, creating a powerful programming and debugging platform.
The Raspberry Pi shield presents all GPIO and peripheral pins collected together as E-blocks2 sockets. The board takes power from an external power supply or from the micro USB port.
New features in E-blocks2 include:
- Power now routed via the connector – no more flying leads
- Board auto-ID functionality
- Smaller footprint using up to date surface mount technology
- Overcurrent resettable fuse protection
If using this board with First Generation downstream E-blocks, then you will need an E-blocks2 upstream to E-blocks downstream connector.
Raspberry Pi not included.
