Explorer pHat header modification


#1

I’m going to be using the Pi Zero W for some IoT courses at a local community college. I want to use the explorer phat, but also need access to the I2C and serial pins for more advanced interfacing and console cable.

I don’t see why I couldn’t just substitute a stacking header for the one included with the kit. Thoughts? Thanks.

That will work. Mate it to a proto zero https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/protozero to get easy access to the GPIO etc. I’ve done it with Proto Hats and the Proto pHats, the Adafruit ones Pimoroni sells. Haven’t got my hands on the one I linked too yet to check it out. I just use the stacking header on the proto hat, then plug my pHat on top of that.
