GPIO Hammer Header Jig Kit(Solderless) (hammer header jig kit)

Raspberry Pi Zero not included!

Absolutely no soldering required! All that's needed is a few gentle taps with a hammer and bazinga! Your header is securely attached to your Pi Zero or pHAT.

Male + Female + Installation Jig

If your soldering isn't quite up to scratch, or you just don't own a soldering iron yet, then these nifty hammer headers might be just the job. They come in male and female flavours, and use crafty little retaining nubbins to grip tightly into the holes on the PCB.

The installation jig kit contains two acrylic base pieces, onto which your Pi Zero or pHAT sits, two nylon bolts, an acrylic top piece onto which you hammer, and both a male and female header. Make sure you carefully read our guide for fitting hammer headers.

We strongly recommend using our installation jig! If you want to try without it then godspeed to you but it is a delicate and tricky process! The female headers are simpler to insert than the male headers as you can hammer straight onto the plastic of the header, but the male ones are particularly tricky without the jig.

Please note: we can't be held responsible for any damage that you may cause to your Pi Zero, pHAT, fingers, or headers while fitting them. If you follow our guide carefully then you should be fine. If this worries you, then get yourself a soldering iron instead!

Loose Male hammer headers are also available.

Tutorial on using the jig

Watch our demo of how to fit the hammer headers on Bilge Tank, below.

  • LED data driven via DMA over PWM
  • Unicorn HAT pinout
  • Compatible with Raspberry Pi 3, 2, B+, A+, Zero, and Zero W
  • Python library
  • Comes fully assembled

Software

We've put together a Unicorn HAT Python library to make it a breeze to use, including lots of beautiful examples of what it can do.

Notes

  • Warning: WS2812 LEDs are bright enough to cause eye pain, do not look at them directly when brightly lit. We recommend the use of a diffuser.
  • 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 requires a >2A microUSB power supply for your Pi. We recommend the official Raspberry Pi power supply.
  • Compatibility (audio): as Unicorn HAT uses PWM and GPIO18, it will interfere with analogue audio playback (random colour patterns and flickering). HDMI should work just fine!

    Software

    Our Pirate Audio software and installer installs the Python library for the LCD, configures the I2S audio and SPI, and then installs Mopidy and our custom Pirate Audio plugins to display album art and track info, and to use the buttons for playback control.

    Here's how to get started:

    1. Set an SD card up with the latest version of Raspbian.
    2. Connect to Wi-Fi or a wired network.
    3. Open a terminal and type the following:

      git clone https://github.com/pimoroni/pirate-audio
      cd pirate-audio/mopidy
      sudo ./install.sh


    4. Reboot your Pi

    Notes

    Note that our installer, linked above, does all of the below for you, but if you're an intrepid hacker then you might need to know this stuff!

    • The low-gain mode is recommended for most use-cases.
    • The DAC can be configured by adding dtoverlay=hifiberry-dac to the /boot/config.txt file.
    • There is a DAC enable pin—BCM 25— that must be driven high to enable the DAC. You can do this by adding gpio=25=op,dh to the /boot/config.txt file.
    • The buttons are active low, and connected to pins BCM 5, 6, 16, and 20
    • The display uses SPI, and you'll need to enable SPI through the Raspberry Pi configuration menu.
    • If you want to use these boards with a Pibow Coupé case (either for the Zero / Zero W or Pi 4), then you'll need to use a booster header to raise it up a little.
