OrangeHat - Raspberry Pi Robot Hat
« on: January 08, 2022, 01:28:26 pm »
Hello EEVblog

I have been working quite a while on a Raspberry Pi hat for robotics as an hobby, I discovered this blog while searching for information and I thought I'd share here the progress.

After trying lots of boards, I decided to focus on the Raspberry Pi for the compute because of power consumption and software available, I'm developing an hat to integrate all the electronics needed for a robot on a single board. Specs:
  • XT60 Power connector
  • 5V3A regulator channel for the Rasperry Pi
  • Servomotors with a dedicated 5V3A regulator channel
  • ATMega 4809 microcontroller
  • Three channel voltage and current monitor
  • Screen
  • Communication Bus (right now RS485, but I'm evaluating CAN)

I release all relevant code and gerber open source, here the github repository:

OrangeHat assembled and powered as of 2022-01

OrangeHat installed on a simple bot as 2022-01

Nice project!   :-+

Why green, shouldn't the PCB be orange?   ;D
