Qwiic HAT for Raspberry Pi Hookup Guide
This Qwiic HAT for Raspberry Pi is the quickest and easiest way to utilize SparkFun’s Qwiic ecosystem while still using that Raspberry Pi that you’ve come to know and love. This Qwiic HAT connects the I2C bus (GND, 3.3V, SDA, and SCL) on your Raspberry Pi to an array of Qwiic connectors. It also has a few important pins on the Raspberry Pi broken out for easy access. Since the Qwiic system allows for daisy chaining (as long as your devices are on different addresses), you can stack as many sensors as you’d like to create a tower of sensing power!
To follow along with this hookup guide, you will need any Raspberry Pi with 2x20 male headers.
Now you probably didn’t buy the Qwiic HAT if you didn’t have any Qwiic products to use with it, right? If you don’t have any Qwiic products, the following might not be a bad place to start.
Finally, you’ll need our handy Qwiic cables to easily connect sensors to your Qwiic HAT. Below are a few options.
