Raspberry Pi shield

I seem to recall that someone used to sell a Raspberry Pi shield with a P1 chip that plugs into the expansion port on a Raspberry Pi. In fact, I have one. I'd like to buy another though and I'd like one that doesn't have the connector installed. My idea is to use it to replace the Raspberry Pi in a PiDP-8i. The PiDP-8i is itself a Raspberry Pi shield but it seems like I should be able to solder male headers onto a Raspberry Pi shield and use it to replace the Pi.

  • Ugh. Never mind. I found my Propeller Hat and it doesn't use a through hole header so it wouldn't be possible to solder in a male header instead of a female one. I'll have to layout a new board.

  • Didn't Pimoroni make one that had a through hole header? I vaguely remembering having to solder header pins onto it.

    The Pimoroni Propeller Hat (#32230) is the one I have.

    It came with the GPIO Pi header already soldered on the board. You could solder in the other SIP headers.

    Someone had fun doing the silkscreen.

    Yes! That's the one!
