What is Grove?
Grove is an electronic component ecosystem launched by Seeed Studio. It assembles actuators, displays, sensors, wireless modules, and other units, more than 300 in the total count, all sharing the same Grove data transmitted cable.
Grove Shield for Raspberry Pi is an expansion board for Raspberry Pi, designed by Seeed Studio, for the orderliness of your connected sensors when you develop projects with Pi. It maintains 24-Pin GPIO and provides 15 additional Grove ports based on the MM32 chip, along with other interfaces, giving you a great and quick development experience.
This is the enhanced Grove Pi Hat for Raspberry Pi 2 / 3B / 3B+ / 4 / Zero, represented by Seeed Studio, where it breaks out all the pins and power of the board to produce 15 multi-function Grove ports and led out the compatible Pi 24-Pin GPIO, SWD debugs interface. With its convenient feature and the entire Grove system supported, it will be your good assistant when you try to start your projects with Raspberry Pi.
Powered by the MM32F031F6P6 chip, the 15 onboard Grove connectors are designed as 3*I2C, 1*UART communication ports,1* PWM port, and 4*Analog with 6*Digital transmitted ports, which support more than 60 related Grove modules. This Pi Hat also comes up with the Raspberry Pi compatible 24-Pin GPIO and the SWD debug interface for further usage at the same time without pulling out.
- Grove & GPIO Pi Hat for Raspberry Pi Series: Break out all the pins and power of the Raspberry Pi to provide 15 multi-function Grove ports and compatible 24-Pin GPIO based on a 12-bit ADC MM32 chip
- Rich Peripherals for Grove: Provide 15 Grove ports including 3× I2C, 1× UART, 6× Digital, and 4× Analog, which also contains 1x PWM port, and the SWD Debug interface.
