Introducing the HatDrive! Piano - this board adds a Texas Instruments DAC with RCA output and coupled headphone amplifier. It also comes with support for PCIe GEN 3 M.2 NVMe storage.

Key Features and Strengths:

  • Specially Designed for Raspberry Pi 5: Dedicated to the latest single-board computer, the Raspberry Pi 5.
  • Bringing back the 3.5mm Headphone Jack: The Pi 5 took the jack away and we brought it back. On top of that the HatDrive! Piano also includes an headphone amplifier 
  • RCA Line Out for easy integration with your sound system: Elevate your Hi-Fi setup with ease
  • High Quality DAC: 112dB Audio Stereo DAC from Texas Instruments with 32-bit, 384kHz PCM Interface
  • NVMe Drive Installation Capability: Supports installing NVMe (M-key) drives in M.2 format sizes 2230 and 2242.
  • PCIe Interface Support: Offers support for PCIe x1 interface in both Gen2 and Gen3 standards.
  • Dual LED Indicators: Features 2 LED lights for power supply voltage (“PWR”) and M.2 disk activity (“ACT”).
  • 40-Pin Raspberry Pi HAT Connector Support: Supports the standard 40-pin Raspberry Pi HAT connector.
  • Dedicated I2C EEPROM Memory: Compatible with HAT ID, allowing for advanced identification and configuration.
  • Advanced Power Supply Monitoring and Diagnostics: Continuous monitoring and diagnostics of the power supply bus, measuring voltage, current, and power parameters in real-time via an I2C interface.
  • M.2 Standard-Compliant Power System: Integrated voltage regulator delivering up to 3A for the 3.3V power rail, compliant with M.2 (NGFF) standard.
  • Easy and Quick M.2 Disk Installation: Quick installation of M.2 disks in 2230 or 2242 format, thanks to a dedicated metal bracket (custom CNC made).
  • M.2 Card Power Options: Capable of powering the M.2 card directly from the FPC PCIe ribbon (port providing a minimum of 5W continuous power) or through the 40-pin HAT connector.
  • High-Quality Components: Utilizes top-quality electronic components and a 4-layer PCB.
  • All Necessary Accessories Included: Comes with a dedicated FPC PCIe ribbon, spacer pins, M2.5 screws, a spacer pin for M.2 card mounting, and a 40-pin male-female HAT connector.
