Picade HAT (alte Version)

HINWEIS: Dies sind die alten Versionen des Picade HAT und Teile Kits. Diese passen nicht mehr zum neuen Picade!!!

Turn your Raspberry Pi into a retro games console! Picade HAT includes joystick and button inputs, a 3W I2S DAC/amplifier, and soft power switch. Nice!

We've taken all the great features of the Picade PCB and crammed them onto this super HAT. Simply plug it onto top of your Pi, wire up your controls, and install our driver! It's ideal for your own custom arcade builds or interfaces that need big colourful buttons.


  • I2S audio DAC with 3W amplifier (mono)
  • Safe power on/off system
  • 4-way digital joystick inputs
  • 6 x game button inputs
  • 4 x utility button inputs
  • 1 x soft power switch input
  • Breakout pins for other GPIO features

The I2S DAC blends both channels of digital audio from the Raspberry Pi into a single mono output. This is then passed through a 3W amplifier to power any connected speaker.

The board also features a soft power switch that allows you turn your Pi on and off safely without risk of SD card corruption. Simply tap the connected button to start up then tap it again to fully shutdown and disconnect power.

* Raspberry Pi and Pibow Coupé case not included!
