The SparkFun Qwiic SHIM Kit for Raspberry Pi comes with everything you need to turn your Raspberry Pi into a fully Qwiic-enabled device. With this kit, you will receive a SparkFun Qwiic SHIM for Raspberry Pi, a Qwiic SerLCD, an ICM-20948 9DoF IMU Breakout, and the necessary cables needed to hook everything together. If you've ever been interested in getting your Raspberry Pi connected with the Qwiic Connect System, you won't find an easier way than with the SparkFun Qwiic SHIM Kit.
The SparkFun Qwiic SHIM for Raspberry Pi, included in this kit, is a small, easily removable breakout to add a Qwiic connector to your Raspberry Pi. The SHIM allows you to plug directly to the Pi's I2C bus with no soldering required and the thin PCB design allows for it to be sandwiched on your Pi GPIO with other HATS. The Qwiic SHIM works great when you do not need the full capabilities of the Qwiic pHAT for Raspberry Pi or if you want to add a Qwiic connector to your Pi but do not have room for yet another HAT.
Note: This kit does not include a Raspberry Pi. A desired Raspberry Pi development board will need to be purchased separately. Check the Hookup Accessories section below for Raspberry Pi options and the Includes tab above for everything included in this kit.
The SparkFun Qwiic Connect System is an ecosystem of I2C sensors, actuators, shields and cables that make prototyping faster and less prone to error. All Qwiic-enabled boards use a common 1mm pitch, 4-pin JST connector. This reduces the amount of required PCB space, and polarized connections mean you can’t hook it up wrong.
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.
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.

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.
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.
