We have manufactured PoE HAT for RPi 3 B+
So far apart from a Fan and a transformer none of the Official hat has been shown either on the underside.mahjongg wrote: ↑Sat Apr 07, 2018 1:09 pmso far I have not heard the official one will have (useable) pass through headers either.
note that this thing, according to the HAT rules, is NOT a HAT! It has no software control, and/or identification EEPROM.
its also doubtful how well it will play with different models of POE injectors (PoE supplies), there doesn't seem to much intelligence aboard this POE receiver to negotiate voltages and protocols, in fact there don't seems to be any (the underside of the board is not shown, so I have to be careful with what I'm claiming)
furthermore it looks like a hastily made adapter for an off the shelf simple POE module, and there are already complaints of the adapter PCB breaking during transport as a consequence of the mechanical weakness of its construction.
also moved to the for sale section, as the B+ addons section isn't the right place, if only because a 3B+ is not a B+.
will these connectors really allow another hat board to be connected through?bensimmo wrote: ↑Sat Apr 07, 2018 1:26 pmIf they (RPI) or the one here uses the recommended HAT gpio pin stop then it should be passthrough and changeable.
I've not seen a picture of the official one showing the underside to see what they are using, only pictures of open holes with pin tops just peaking in them.
