BitScope Blade – The industrial solution for Raspberry Pi

BitScope Blade Uno.jpg


BitScope Blade Uno is a flexible power and mounting solution for a single Raspberry Pi computer. Blade Uno solves the power problem when using Raspberry Pi in industrial and other mission critical applications.

It has a built-in 5V switch mode power supply capable of powering the Raspberry Pi, one HAT and up to four high current USB devices connected via the Raspberry Pi. It can also provide power to two more USB devices connected via the USB sockets on Blade itself (subject to a the total blade power budget).

Blade Uno can accommodate a standard mini-breadboard in the HAT slot for circuit prototyping. It can even be used to power and mount the Raspberry Pi 7" Touchscreen Display, one Raspberry Pi, a HAT and up to four BitScopes!

Full access to Raspberry Pi I/O including I2C, SPI, UART, PWM and GPIO is provided via the Blade HUB CAP expansion socket underneath the Raspberry Pi. Connect personality cards (e.g. a real-time clock, operation status displays, or almost any other physical I/O that conform to these standards).

It is the perfect computing platform for makers, students and engineers using Raspberry Pi.
