Pico RGB Keypad Base (Pico RGB Keypad Base)

Connect a glorious, squishy, 4x4 rainbow-illuminated keypad to your Raspberry Pi Pico - perfect for making a custom USB input device!

Scoring very highly in the Pimoroni "things on our desk that make people say ooo" rankings, RGB Keypad Base equips a Pico with an eye-catching 4x4 silicone keypad, fully loaded with addressable APA102 LEDs so that each key can be illuminated in any colour that your little unicorn heart desires. It's all mounted on a sturdy base with rubber feet to keep it nice and level, with a handily labelled landing area for your Pico. We've broken out the full set of Pico pins to make it easy to connect up other hardware as well.

Connect your Pico project to another computer via USB for a beautiful macro keypad or a tidy midi controller. RGB Keypad Base would also work well in any project that would benefit from having fancy light up buttons as inputs - a code protected door lock perhaps, a disco dance floor for your fingers or a Simon Says style game with which to taunt your friends.

A Raspberry Pi Pico is not included - click here if you'd like to buy one!

Your Pico will need to have male headers soldered to it (with the pins pointing downwards) to attach to our add-on boards.

Features

  • 4x4 silicone keypad with conductive buttons
  • 16 x APA102 addressable RGB LEDs (datasheet)
  • Keypad buttons are connected via a TCA9555 IO expander (I2C address: 0x20).
  • Labelled landing area with female headers for attaching your Pico, with broken out pins.
  • Compatible with Raspberry Pi Pico.
  • Some assembly required!
  • No soldering required (as long as your Pico has header pins attached).
  • Dimensions: approx 60mm x 101mm x 16mm (L x W x H, assembled)
  • C/C++ and MicroPython libraries

Includes

  • 1x Pico RGB Keypad Base
  • 1x (reversible) square retainer plate
  • 1x silicone keypad
  • M2 8mm bolts and nuts
  • 4x rubber feet

Getting started

Turn the larger board over, and attach the little rubber feet to the paw print spaces on the bottom.

Flip it over again, and pop the silicone keypad over the buttons so the tabs fit into the holes. You can then slot the retainer plate over the top of the keys, matching up the key markings with those on the base board. You can install the retainer plate either way up, depending on whether you prefer it patterned or plain!

Poke the M2 bolts through the holes in the mounting plate (from the top) and screw on the nuts to keep all the layers sandwiched together. The bolts only need to be tightened up enough to keep the layers in place - if you find that the keys are hard to push or that the silicone layer is bulging out of the sides you might want to slacken them off a bit.

The labels on the base will show you which way round to attach your Pico - just match up the USB port to the markings on the board.

The easiest way to get started is by downloading and copying our custom MicroPython uf2 to your Pico, it includes all the libraries you'll need to use our add-ons. Click here for our beginner friendly tutorial!

You can find C examples here and MicroPython examples here.

  • C++ and MicroPython libraries

Getting started

We've added C++/MicroPython support for Wireless Pack to our Pico libraries and our custom MicroPython uf2 comes with wireless drivers for the ESP32 baked in. You can find C++ examples here and MicroPython examples here - there's a Cheerlights example that shows you how to make requests from an API, and one that sets your Pico up as a tiny HTTP server, accessible through your browser.

Alternatively, you can use Pico Wireless Pack with CircuitPython and Adafruit's easy to use ESP32SPI and Adafruit_CircuitPython_SD libraries. You'll need to alter their examples to use the correct pins:

spi = busio.SPI(board.GP18, board.GP19, board.GP16)

esp32_cs = DigitalInOut(board.GP7)
esp32_ready = DigitalInOut(board.GP10)
esp32_reset = DigitalInOut(board.GP11)

SD_CS = board.GP22

Notes

  • * Please note that SD card support in the C++ SDK is still quite experimental - if you're planning on doing things with data you might have an easier time of it if you use CircuitPython!
  • The cuttable traces on the back let you disconnect functions that you're not using, freeing up the pins and making it easier to use Wireless Pack with other add-ons.

PiBorg - Motor Controller (Piborg motor controller)

The PicoBorg is an ultra compact motor controller for the Raspberry Pi!

With PicoBorg, you can turn on and off fans, motors, solenoids or relays from your Raspberry Pi. There are 4 low side drivers, so you can turn on and off 4 devices, and one device is connected to the Pi's PWM pin, so you can vary the speed of that motor! Motor control is accessed via a simple GUI, which can be installed by following the PicoBorg installation instructions.

Motor power is not taken directly from the Raspberry Pi, so there's no risk of your Pi dropping out. Instead, the PicoBorg utilises a battery pack to drive the motors; meaning you're not restricted to 5V motors, in fact you can drive ANY motors up to 20V!

The PicoBorg is perfect for any small motor project, for example:

  • 4 fans on/off control over all and vary speed on one fan
  • 4 solenoids
  • 4 DC motors (on / off control over all and vary speed on one motor)
  • Control one 6 wire stepper motor in both directions
  • Rover project!

The PicoBorg Features:

  • Drive 4 x DC Motors (on/off) or 1 x 6-Wire Stepper motor (Bi-Direction)
  • Allows speed control on 1 x Motor
  • Max 20V recommended 12V or less
  • Max current 2.5A (stall) or less
  • Primarily designed to be used with large resistance, low inductance motors and for learning and experimenting purposes.

Warnings:
  • As there are no pull up or pull down resistors on the inputs, the picoBorg expects the Pi to be controlling the pins when the power is applied. Power the Pi first, run the software and then apply power to the PicoBorg.
  • There is no thermal shutoff, keep an eye on temperature of the FETs and diodes
  • There is no current limiting, you must observe current restrictions
  • There is no short circuit or reverse voltage protection
  • For commercial applications and control of larger motors and lower resistance coils etc, PiBorg or PiBorg nano may be a better solution
  • If you are new to electronics and getting started, we recommend you don't use a battery, rather a low current <100mA power supply as this can be more forgiving if you get things wrong
  • Be very careful of connections and soldering as mistakes could potentially hurt your picoBorg and Raspberry Pi.
