Introducing the ‘ARMinARM’ board for the Pi Family

The ARMinARM board is an STM32 ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller add-on board for the Raspberry Pi Model B+ with a focus on flexibility and hackability, while still being easy to use. The STM32 runs on 72MHz and has 512KB Flash and 64KB SRAM memory.

Give the Raspberry Pi B+ SATA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth & More..

Supstronics X300
I have been patiently waiting the release of the new Raspberry Pi B+ Expansion Board from Suptronics, the X300 for the last couple of months.The X300 is Raspberry Pi B+ Expansion Board that adds WiFi, Bluetooth, RTC, Microphone input, 3.3W Stereo Audio & SPDIF output, IR receiver, SATA and More.

Raspberry Pi ‘Plate’ or Add-on with 16 Ch. Servo & 16 Ch. GPIO

Pridopia Pi-9685-23017
Over 12 months ago I came across a “I2C: 16 Channel, 12 bit PMW Servo & I2C 23017, 16 GPIO” add-on board for the Raspberry Pi made by a U.K. company called, Pridopia. At the time I thought too myself, “What a great idea”, but I had no immediate use for one. That has since changed thanx to my Raspberry Pi powered ‘LEGO Train Layout‘ I’m currently constructing.

Japanese shop Breadboard Maniac has come up with a custom breadboard that you can use for work and play. The CakeBoard is a solderless breadboard that you can stack and connect like LEGO. In fact you can connect it to LEGO. Because.

BrickPi: Raspberry Pi for Mindstorms Robots

BickPi is a system that converts Raspberry Pi into a robot.  The project is a board and case that connects LEGO® Mindstorms Sensors, motors, and parts to turn your credit card size computer into a robot.  The BrickPi allows you to connect up to 3 NXT Motors and 4 Sensors.

Arduberry Interface Board for the Raspberry Pi

The staff at Dexter Industries have busy developing an interface between the Raspberry Pi, and the world of Arduino called the Arduberry. The Arduberry allows the mating of Arduino shields too the Raspberry Pi with a simple, inexpensive hardware interface. Slide the Arduberry onto your Pi, fit a Arduino Shield, copy your Arduino code across, and hit the go button.

Opto-pi: Raspberry Pi Opto-Isolator Board

I have just backed this project on Kickstarter, and feel that if you are a Raspberry Pi owners looking to use higher voltages with your mini PC, then you might be interested in this new opto-isolator board called the Opto-pi which has been specifically designed to be used with the awesome Raspberry Pi mini PC.
