Explorer HAT Pro GPIO Breakout Questions


#1

Hi,

I just received and Explorer HAT Pro in the mail yesterday and I love it!

I have a couple questions about the GPIO breakout pins. What are each of them for, and what are the pin numbers assigned to them?

Thanks for any help!

if you mean those on the right hand side, they are the direct equivalents of the Pi GPIO, mostly breaking out the SPI, IIC, and UART pins, but the PWM GPIO 18 is also there.

… since they are General Purpose Input Output however, there is nothing stopping you using them outside of their common context though.

Have fun!

Oh, OK. Thanks for the response. Going back to play some more with my new toy :-)
