Mouser Electronics and Pimoroni Sign Global Distribution Agreement

Mouser Electronics, Inc., the New Product Introduction (NPI) leader empowering innovation, announces a global distribution agreement with Pimoroni, designers and manufacturers of tech treasures for makers, educators, and creatives. Through the agreement, Mouser now stocks Pimoroni’s accessories for Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and micro:bit boards.

Pimoroni offers a broad selection of Raspberry Pi accessories, ranging from the company’s first product, the Pibow case, to a variety of HATs and pHATs that add almost unlimited functionality to the Raspberry Pi and Raspberry Pi Zero single-board computers. HAT and pHAT options include different LED matrices, gesture detection, musical instruments, and prototyping boards for creating new projects.

Mouser is also now stocking the Pimoroni Picade PCB, an Arduino-compatible board designed for use in arcade-game projects. The board features a Microchip ATmega32U4 microcontroller and comes with the Arduino bootloader and Pimoroni software pre-installed. Screw-terminal contacts enable engineers to add a four-direction joystick and up to 12 buttons, plus two 4-Ohm speakers driven by the onboard 3 W amplifier.

Pimoroni’s micro:bit-compatible products include the scroll:bit, pin:bit, and an accessories kit. The scroll:bit is a small display board with 119 bright white LEDs for scrolling text, animations, and graphs. The pin:bit is a tiny breadboard extension for prototyping new circuits. The micro:bit accessories kit consists of a switchable AAA battery pack and micro-USB cable for getting started with micro:bit.
