    PiStep2 Quad Stepper Motor Control Board for Raspberry Pi (3B2 PiStep2 stepper hat)

    This neat little board plugs directly into the Raspberry Pi GPIO header and provides 2 or 4 connectors for small stepper motors

    • Fully Assembled - No Soldering Required
    • Raspberry Pi Zero Form Factor - works with all versions of Raspberry Pi with 40pin GPIO connector
    • Stepper motors and Raspberry Pi not included

    Various Power Options:

    1. Powered from the Raspberry Pi 5V
    2. From the 2-pin Terminal (whatever voltage is required for the motors)
    3. Micro-USB - 5V only

    Pinout is simple:

    • Physical pins 11, 12, 13, 15 for Motor A (GPIO 17, 18, 27, 22)
    • Physical pins 16, 18, 22, 7 for Motor B (GPIO 23, 24, 25, 04)
    • Physical pins 33, 32, 31, 29 for Motor C (GPIO 13,12,6,5)
    • Physical Pins 38, 37, 36, 35 for Motor D (GPIO 20,26,16,19)

    Each pin has an associated white LED so you can see the stepper signals going through

    Power Supply Alternatives

    • Jumper VCC-VSTP (default). Power from the motors is taken from the Raspberry Pi 5V line
      • Micro-USB into Raspberry Pi. 5V for the Pi and the stepper motors goes through a poly-fuse which can trip if 2 motors are used simultaneously
      • Micro-USB into the PiStep board. 5V for both the Pi and the stepper motors is provided directly from the 5V USB input so no problems with 2 motors at once
    • Jumper VSTP-VIN. Power for the motors is provided from the 2-pin screw terminal, so can be any voltage that the steppers can handle. Ensure you use the correct polarity! We recommend to keep it below 12V. You will find that the stepper motors can go up to 9V and will be able to step faster, the higher the voltage that is applied, but there will be some deterioration of the life of the stepper motor at a higher voltage.

    Python Programming

    Please see the excellent example here for some pointers. You will need to change the pin numbers as above and also change the speed so it steps at a visible rate. You may also want to remove the print statements to speed it up. The lines in Red below are changed from the original to operate Motor A.

    # Use BCM GPIO references
    # instead of physical pin numbers
    GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM)

    # Define GPIO signals to use
    # Pins 18,22,24,26
    # GPIO24,GPIO25,GPIO8,GPIO7
    StepPins = [17,18,27,22]

    # Set all pins as output
    for pin in StepPins:
      print "Setup pins"
      GPIO.setup(pin,GPIO.OUT)
      GPIO.output(pin, False)

    # Define some settings
    StepCounter = 0
    WaitTime = 0.01

    ScratchGPIO Programming

    These pins are identical to those required by ScratchGPIO and therefore can easily be driven using simple Scratch commands:

    Set motor type for Scratch to be Stepper motor

    Set the position of the stepper motor A

    Set the speed of the stepper motor A

    Citizen science air quality monitoring

    We've developed this board in collaboration with the University of Sheffield, with the aim of letting you contribute real-time air quality data from your local area to open data projects like Luftdaten.

    The alarming drop in our air quality is something that's really important to understand. Devices like Enviro+ allow fine-grained, detailed datasets that let us see shifts in air quality through time and across different areas of cities. The more devices that contribute data, the better quality the dataset becomes.

    Particulate matter (PM) is made up of tiny particles that are a mix of sizes and types, like dust, pollen, mould spores, smoke particles, organic particles and metal ions, and more. Particulates are much of what we think of as air pollution. They can be measured, in size and quantity, by particulate matter sensors like the PMS5003 that you can connect to Enviro+.

    The analog gas sensor can be used to make qualitative measurements of changes in gas concentrations, so you can tell broadly if the three groups of gases are increasing or decreasing in abundance. Without laboratory conditions or calibration, you won't be able to say "the concentration of carbon monoxide is n parts per million", for example.

    Temperature, air pressure and humidity can all affect particulate levels (and the gas sensor readings) too, so the BME280 sensor on Enviro+ is really important to understanding the other data that Enviro+ outputs.

    We've got a tutorial (coming soon) that shows you how to use Enviro+ and a few easily-available bits to build the board into a weather-proof housing that you can mount outside your house to monitor local air quality.

    Indoor monitoring

    As well as outdoor air quality monitoring, Enviro+ is really good for indoor monitoring too. The temperature, humidity, light, and noise readings can be used to keep track of conditions in your home and, combined with the LCD to display the data and the proximity sensor for interaction, it makes an ideal headless monitoring device.

    Why not combine it with some IoT smarts like an Alexa skill so that you can ask what the temperature or humidity is? Or you could set up a trigger action with IFTTT that turns your Philips Hue lights on when the light level drops below a certain level. There's loads of possibilities!

    Software

    We've put together a Python library to control all the parts of your Enviro+. There's a bunch of examples for each of the individual parts, an all-in-one example that shows you the data from Enviro+'s sensors in a visual way. There's also an example that shows you how to contribute data to Luftdaten (requires particulate matter sensor).

    Getting started

    Have a read through our (exhaustive!) Getting Started with Enviro+ tutorial that walks you through how to install the software, how to run the code examples, and how to use the Enviro+ Python library.

    Touch pHAT (3B3 touch phat)

    Six touch-sensitive buttons to use for whatever your heart desires, with added LEDs (did you expect anything less?)

    Touch pHAT has six capacitive touch buttons, each with a bright white LED, designed to be completely agnostic about what they're used for. You can even use a dry erase pen to write on the pads to label their function.

    It uses the CAP1166 capacitive touch and LED driver chip. The LEDs have been under-mounted and shine through exposed sections of the PCB to give a pleasing yellow-green glow and a completely smooth top surface!

    Use Touch pHAT as a controller for your robot, a controller for your Mote lights, a tiny drum machine, or use it to build a simple game where you have to taps the buttons to repeat the sequence of lights that just flashed.

    Features

    • Six capacitive touch buttons
    • Six bright white under-mounted LEDs
    • Microchip CAP1166 capacitive touch and LED driver chip
    • Compatible with Raspberry Pi 3, 2, B+, A+, Zero, Zero W
    • Python library
    • Female header requires soldering

    Software

    Our handy one-line installer will install the Touch pHAT Python library for you. We've included a couple of examples too, to show off what you can do with Touch pHAT.

    Unicorn pHAT (Unicorn pHAT)

    What's going to protect your beloved Raspberry Pi from an onslaught of rainbow-coloured fusion? That's right, it's Unicorn pHAT.

    Sporting a matrix of 32 (8 x 4) RGB LEDs and powered directly from the Pi, this is the most compact pocket aurora available.

    Unicorn pHAT provides a wash of controllable colour that is ideal for mood-lighting, pixel art, persistence of vision effects, status indications, or just blasting colour into your surroundings.

    Features

    • 32 RGB LEDs (SK6218 - 3.5mm x 3.5mm)
    • LED data driven via DMA over PWM
    • Unicorn pHAT pinout
    • Compatible with Raspberry Pi 3, 2, B+, A+, Zero, and Zero W
    • Python library
    • Female header requires soldering

    Software

    Unicorn pHAT uses the same Python library as Unicorn HAT, so it's super-easy to use, should automatically detect that you're using the pHAT and includes some examples written specially for Unicorn pHAT.

    Notes

    • Warning: SK6218 LEDs are bright enough to cause eye pain, do not look at them directly when brightly lit. We recommend using Unicorn pHAT at lower brightness levels.
    • Photo-sensitivity warning: flashing, strobing, and patterns of lights may cause epileptic seizures. Always take care and immediately stop using if you feel unwell (dizziness, nausea, affected vision, eye twitching, disorientation).
    • Power: Unicorn pHAT works best with a >2A microUSB power supply for your Pi. We recommend the official Raspberry Pi power supply.
    • Compatibility (audio): as Unicorn pHAT uses PWM and GPIO18, it will interfere with analogue audio playback (random colour patterns and flickering). HDMI should work just fine! :D
