Anyone who enjoys prototyping using the smaller Raspberry Pi Zero or newly available Zero W mini PC now with Bluetooth and wireless connectivity, maybe interested in a new prototyping board which is now available from the Adafruit online store.
Priced at under five dollars the prototyping board allows you to create your very own Bonnet or pHAT and attach custom circuitry directly to your Raspberry Pi Zero mini PC.
Adafruit explains more :
Design your own Bonnet or pHAT, attach custom circuitry and otherwise dress your Pi Zero with this jaunty prototyping Bonnet kit! To add to the Adafruit Bonnet party, we have this Perma-Proto inspired plug in daughter board. It has a grid of 0.1″ prototyping soldering holes for attaching chips, resistors, LED, potentiometers and more. The holes are connected underneath with traces to mimic the solderless breadboards you’re familiar. There’s also long power strips for +3V, +5V and Ground connections to the Pi. Near the top we break out nearly every pin you could want to connect to the Pi (#26 didn’t quite make the cut).
The Perma-Proto Bonnet comes with a printed circuit board and a single 2×20 GPIO Header for Raspberry Pi to put your Perma-Proto on top of your Raspberry Pi Zero (like a nice little bonnet…). Unlike our Perma-Proto HATs, this design does not include an EEPROM, so you can ‘stack’ it with other Bonnets and pHATs without worrying about an EEPROM address collision.
Jump over to the Adafruit online store for more specifications and to purchase.
