The "Fake HAT" is a 2x20 way female connector with long pins soldered to a board with a Raspberry Pi HAT compliant CAT24C32 (32kbit EEPROM) on I2C address 0x50.

It's designed to be used for quick testing of GPIO configuration (direction/mode/etc.), kernel overlays and storing configuration files without having the real hardware connected to the Raspberry Pi!

  • Emulate a Raspberry Pi HAT to test software!
  • Develop EEPROM contents for a compliant Raspberry Pi HAT!
  • Setup GPIO pins, overlays etc for breadboard projects!

The EEPROM connects to the Raspberry Pi GPIO ID_SD (physical pin 27) and ID_SC (physical pin 28) and GND/3v3.

For guidance on using the Fake HAT, 8086 advise checking this forum thread.

Please Note:

  • PCB colour may vary
  • Raspberry Pi and heatsinks not included
  • This board is named "Fake HAT" due to it not being compliant with the Raspberry Pi HAT specifications (primarily due to its physical dimensions)
  • It must not be used when another device is connected to the ID_CD/ID_SC pins
