Use with your Raspberry Pi to add motors, switch multiple devices on and off or build a message board, what you add is up to you with the Gertboard’s flexible compatibility.

What can I use the Gertboard for?

With the pre-assembled kit there is no need to solder which means all the components stay firmly and neatly in place. The Gertboard powers itself straight from your Raspberry Pi so there’s no need for an additional power supply, just sit the board on top of your Raspberry Pi. The board contains pins for a motor controller, analogue to digital and digital to analogue connections, switches, LEDs relays and GPIO for whatever experiments you can dream up.

What is compatible with my Gertboard?

Compatible with all Raspberry Pi boards and most accessories the Gertboard lets you extend your experiment to even more input or outputs opening up a world of possibilities. The expansion board is even capable of connecting to Arduino to add an extra level to your projects. Arduino can be used to make anything from a RFID cat door to a pressure activated light-up umbrella or an EyeWriter to an animatronic hand.
