The Raspberry Pi HAT - 32 I/O Port Expander (RPI-32IO-PEB) board is a 32 Input/Output digital expansion board designed for use on the Raspberry Pi A+, Raspberry Pi B+, Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, and Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. The board use two Microchip MCP23017 16-bit I/O expander, allowing you to connect up to 32 digital inputs or outputs to the Raspberry Pi. The RPI-32IO-PE is connected to Raspberry Pi using a 20x2 GPIO connector with extended pins that allow you to stack many extension boards in a single Raspberry Pi.
You can select the I2C address using the on-board 3bits switches (ON=0 the pin is grounded, OFF=1 the pin is pull up to 5V). The MCP23017 supports up to 8 different I2C addresses as follow:
Due to there are two MCP23017 per board you are allowed to stack up to four RPI-32IO-PEB boards on a single Raspberry Pi for a maximum of 128 I/O ports.
The right angle headers allow you to connect the I/Os while the boards are stacked.
The RPI-32IO-PEB may be powered thru a 5V input polarized male connector (female cable to connect external supply included) or thru the Raspberry Pi GPIO 5V pins.
If you use the first option you can power the Raspberry Pi shorting the "Back PWR" jumper or isolate the Pi and RPI-32IO-PEB keeping it open. In order to power the RPI-32IO-PEB thru the Raspberry Pi GPIO 5V pins the "Back PWR" jumper must be shorted.
Use of an external supply is recommended when you connect more than one RPI-32IO-PEB boards to your Raspberry Pi.
Vdd (5V polarized input header without BACK PWR): 4.5V - 5.5V
All digital inputs and outputs: 0 - Vdd
Maximum current on a single I/O Pin (sourced or sunk): 25 mA
Maximum current on each MCP23017 chip: 125 mA
