40 pin Skywriter on 26 pin raspberry pi


Hi I mistakenly ordered 40 pin skywriter, and was wondering if I can still use it on my 26 pin raspberry pi 2.

Thank you for any help you can provide.


Seems like it only uses 4 pins (and I guess power?) so you shouldn’t have a problem.


Thank you so much for your reply.

I am not sure how much power, should I connect to. Secondly, by looking at the diagram I am not sure which pins should I connect on skywriter.


The HAT is designed to sit directly on top of the RPi, so it should just be a case of connecting the pins shown in the diagram to their equivalent locations on the HAT.

For power you want to do the same, you want to connect the 3V3 pin on the Pi (pin 1) to the equivalent location on the HAT. Similarly do the same for one of the GND pins.


Thank you so much, I am really grateful to you.

It worked perfectly.
