Pimoroni has taken all the great features of the Picade PCB and crammed them onto this super Picade HAT. It's the best, easiest way to make a super-sweet arcade system using any Raspberry Pi.

Simply pop it onto your Pi, plug your Pi power supply into the micro-USB connector on the Picade HAT (it back-powers your Pi through the GPIO, so no need for a separate power supply), wire up your controls to the terminal blocks, and install their driver! It's ideal for your own custom arcade builds or interfaces that need big colorful buttons.

Features:

  • I2S audio DAC with 3W amplifier (mono) for great quality sound
  • Safe power on/off system
  • Micro-USB connector for power (back-powers your Pi)
  • 4-way digital joystick inputs
  • 6 x game button inputs
  • 4 x utility button inputs
  • 1 x soft power switch input
  • Breakout pins for other GPIO features

The I2S DAC blends both channels of digital audio from the Raspberry Pi into a single mono output. This is then passed through a 3W amplifier to power any connected speaker.

The board also features a soft power switch that allows you turn your Pi on and off safely without risk of SD card corruption. Simply tap the connected button to start up, and press and hold it for 3 seconds to fully shutdown and disconnect power.

Raspberry Pi not included.

Check out our Arcade buttons and Joysticks - not included but make for a great pack.

Notes

  • You can find the software/drivers on Pimoroni's Picade HAT GitHub page.
  • We recommend you use a set of brass M2.5 standoffs with Picade HAT to avoid pins contacting the HDMI port if the HAT is pushed down.
