I own a Raspberry 2 B+ and I’m about to build an IR transmitter to replace my remote. The project and the schematic are presented in details here : http://alexba.in/blog/2013/06/08/open-source-universal-remote-parts-and-pictures/.
I need direct access to gpio pins. So, I think that excludes Explorer Hat/Pro. I was thinking to get the Propeller HAT because it seems to give access to direct gpio pins, 5V vcc and 3.3V vcc, and that’s all I need. But I just want to be sure before placing my order. Will it work ? Or should I get an Adafruit T-Cobbler with a classic mini breadboard ? I’d rather go with the Propeller HAT as it fits perfectly in the pibow coupé. I don’t want a breadboard hanging around my RPi.
Thanks in advance for your help !
