Duplicating your Raspberry Pi GPIO with some FullpHAT


Have you been struggling with a lack of a space to hang your HATs? I’m not talking about your average Tribly or cloth cap, but your Raspberry Pi HATs! Fresh from the pages of the DesignSpark Marketplace is this nifty little kit from RasPI.TV, aptly named the RasPIO FullpHAT.

The FullpHAT, when fitted to your Raspberry Pi (137-3331) , essentially duplicates the existing GPIO, giving you the freedom to double-up on your HATs and expand the horizons of your designs and projects.

FullpHAT Features:

  • Connect 2 pHATs to your Pi and still use spare GPIO ports
  • Connect a pHAT and a HAT to your Pi and still use spare GPIO ports
  • Break out the Pi GPIO ports multiple times
  • Lots of possibilities for combining boards into a project


RasPi.TV has created a varied range of Raspberry Pi related boards and just like all the others, the connections on the FullpHAT are labelled in a large, easy-to-read font. The GPIO’s are broken out twice in addition to the two pHAT headers and there are even extra holes for power and GND.

There’s plenty of options for you, for instance; you can add extra headers or perhaps solder additional wires to the FullpHAT to cater for whatever project you are undertaking. There’s plenty of room to expand your prototyping horizons with this cracking little kit that is available on the DesignSpark Marketplace.
