Helium Atom to Raspberry Pi Adapter

Helium adapters make it simple to physically connect the Atom Prototyping Module to popular embedded devices. The Helium Atom to Raspberry Pi Adapter is an easy-to-use HAT-like board equipped with a NRF24LO1 port, Atom socket and RGB-status LED.

Also included with each board is an onboard socket for a NRF24LO1 or NRF24L01+ 2.4GHz wireless transceiver module in case you wanted to swap out one of the mini antenna included on the Atom Prototyping Module.

Since Helium is a complete toolkit for building IoT applications that can connect to public clouds, a pre-built, secure connection from Atom modules interacts with what are called Helium Channels. Channels are a convenience layer between sensors and your organization’s cloud of choice that can connect to public clouds like Amazon Web Services, Azure, Google Cloud IoT Core or a private offering. Channels can also be used to send device data to applications and services via generic protocols like HTTP and MQTT.

Helium Atom to Raspberry Pi Adapter Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

3 Programming

Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
