How to install it?

  • Please strictly follow the installation method as shown in the figure below for installation. During the installation process, please protect your FFC cable well to avoid damage. Additionally, it is important to pay attention to the direction of the FFC cable on the HAT board; the gold fingers should be facing upwards. Moreover, when connecting the FFC cable between the Raspberry Pi and the HAT board, please refer to the information indicated on the cable for connection. "To HAT" means to connect to the HAT board, and "To RPI5" means to connect to the PCIe interface of Raspberry Pi 5.
