FLIRC Raspberry Pi Zero and Zero 2 Case (Zero Flirc Case)

The FLIRC Raspberry Pi Zero Case is finally here - overly engineered, affordable and adorable!

The FLIRC Zero shares the same genetics as the original FLIRC case with some added features. FLIRC have kept everything that makes the original case great, shrunk it down, and added some nice elements that make this mini PC for every day carry.

The familiar aluminium casing with a core heatsink and smooth top is there, offering silent, passive and efficient cooling combined with great looks.

The SD Card is enclosed inside the case so it won't slip out or get stolen. The case needs to be disassembled before the SD card can be removed. There’s even a pre-installed lanyard included in the box in case you want to take your Zero somewhere other than the home.

Two top covers are included with the FLIRC Zero – allowing you to hide away and protect your GPIO, or leave it exposed for prototyping your projects. You can even add a pHAT without worrying about your Zero’s temperature.


What's in the box?

1 x FLIRC Zero Aluminum Case
1 x Thermal pad
2 x Top covers (sealed and GPIO access)
1 x Lanyard (pre-installed, removable)

Notes

1. The Raspberry Pi Zero’s LEDs are not visible with this case
2. Lanyard is removable (but fiddly to get back on)
3. Ships with a thermal pad – fit this to the case heatsink core before fitting your Raspberry Pi Zero

Which Pi Zero Models is the case compatible with?

The case will work with any Raspberry Pi Zero model, including the Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W

Unicorn HAT HD (Unicorn HAT HD)
Description:

We've stepped up our LED game! Unicorn HAT HD crams 256 RGB LEDs, in a 16x16 matrix, onto a single HAT. High-definition rainbow goodness!

You can still use it for all of the same things as the regular Unicorn HAT, but with 4 times as many pixels it makes much more complex animations possible, including scrolling text, and even low resolution videos.

The bundled ninja diffuser makes the pixels look extra-shiny by providing some subtle diffusion, blurring the lines between each pixel. Simply use four of the nuts to space the diffuser slightly away from the HAT, and the other four to secure it.

The MagPi said that Unicorn HAT HAD had a "real wow factor" and that the "performance is excellent" in their five star review.

Features

  • 256 RGB LED pixels in a 16x16 matrix
  • Pixels driven by ARM STM32F and three STP16CPC26 LED drivers
  • Bundled ninja diffuser, plus nuts and bolts
  • Unicorn HAT HD pinout
  • Compatible with Raspberry Pi 3, 2, B , A , Zero, and Zero W
  • Python library
  • Comes fully assembled

The ARM chip on Unicorn HAT HD does all of the heavy lifting, meaning that you can just bung data to it and it'll take care of the rest. It acts as the man-in-the-middle between your Pi and the three STP16CPC26 LED drivers that actually drive the LEDs.

Software

Our Python library will have your Unicorn HAT HD pooping out high-definition rainbows in a jiffy. There's a stack of examples too, to show you how to create slick animations, simulate the Game of Life, a forest fire or a flickering candle, and even scroll text!

Notes
  • 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 HAT HD requires a >2A microUSB power supply for your Pi. We recommend the official Raspberry Pi power supply.

Unicorn pHAT (Unicorn pHAT)
Description:

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

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.

What's in the box?

1 x PiBorg - Motor Controller

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.
