Turn your Raspberry Pi into a retro games console! Picade X HAT includes joystick and button inputs, a 3W I2S DAC/amplifier, and soft power switch.
Picade X HAT is now Raspberry Pi 4 compatible, with USB-C power!
This HAT has all the same great features as the original Picade HAT but now has no-fuss female Dupont connectors to hook up your joystick and buttons.
Simply pop Picade X HAT onto your Pi, plug a USB-C power supply into the connector on the HAT (it back-powers your Pi through the GPIO, so no need for a separate power supply), wire up your controls, and install the driver! It's ideal for your own DIY arcade cabinet builds, or for interfaces that need big, colourful buttons and sound.
PiMoroni has put together a simple one-line installer that'll get everything set up on your Picade X HAT, the controls, safe shutdown, and audio. Open a terminal and type: curl https://get.pimoroni.com/picadehat | bash to run the installer. You'll need to reboot once the installation is complete, if it doesn't prompt you to do so.
The software does not support Raspbian Wheezy
Note: With USB-C power connected through Picade X HAT you'll need either to tap the connected power button or the button marked "switch" on the HAT to power on your Pi.
