16 Channel Analog Input HAT – ADC for Raspberry Pi
The Raspberry Pi 16-Channel Analog Input HAT provides 16 x 10-bit analog input channels for your Raspberry Pi. Compatible with all versions of the Raspberry Pi 4 and any other 40 pin GPIO versions of the Raspberry Pi.
Need an easy way to get a bunch of analog signals into your Raspberry Pi? This 16 channel 10 bit analog input HAT is the solution! The board is simple at heart, a pair of MCP3008 analog to digital converters connected on the Raspberry Pi’s SPI bus. Need to create a voltage divider on the input? Each channel has room for a standard 1206 SMD chip resistor and a couple solder jumpers to enable and set the resistor as a pull-up or pull-down; no wiring required!
This HAT is compatible with the most recent versions of the Raspberry Pi (including all versions of the Pi 4) and ships without any headers. When connecting to the Raspberry Pi we recommend using the Pi HAT Header. 40 Pin breakaway headers work well for the inputs, we also have right angle 4 x 3 connectors that will work well when stacking additional HATs with this board.
To make this board as easy to use as possible, we have written a complete tutorial and simple python library. Both are available via the Resources Tab below!
- 16 analog channels
- 0 - 3.3V inputs
- Easy to use pull up/down resistor pads
- 10 bit resolution
- Connects via SPI bus
- Up and running in minutes with Python

A schematic and manual would be nice. Here is a pic of the traces.

Thanks for the feedback (and the cool photo). Better documentation for a few of these products is on the to-do list. There is also a tutorial being written for this specific product. In the mean time if you have any questions please feel free to ask and we can get you the appropriate information.

What is the voltage on the middle row “+” pins on the 3×4 connectors?
Chris @ BCR –
The middle pin is 3.3VDC on this board

Is this compatible with the Beaglebone green?
Front Desk @ BCR –
This wouldn’t be compatible with the Beaglebone Green – but the Beaglebone has its own onboard Analog to Digital capabilities so it wouldn’t really be needed anyways 🙂

Hi, Has the tutorial for this product been made? If not, are there any example codes for using this HAT anywhere? I’ve found code for using a single MCP3008 IC but not much on using two.
Chris @ BCR –
We are just finishing up a complete tutorial on this product and should have it up in the next couple days. It covers the entire process from a fresh Raspbian install to reading both chips in Python. We also cover how to hook up a variety of different analog sensors and how all of the SMD jumpers can be used to simplify wiring. Stay Tuned!

Can this be used with 5V analog inputs?
