Raspberry Zero and Waveshare NB-IoT HAT

Sun Jun 16, 2019 3:12 pm

I'm trying to connect a camera to my Raspberry Zero, but it already has a Waveshare NB-IoT HAT on top, taking all the pins avaiable.

Do you have any suggestions on how to connect the camera (or any sensor) to the Pi with the Hat on?

What camera do you have that uses the GPIO pins to connect?

The official cameras use the "Camera" connector. You can also use USB cameras.

I would check to find out what Pins it is actually using. It may be physically covering all the pins but maybe only using a few of them.

You can break out the other pins using something like cobbler to breadboard or breakout kits. If you want lots of expansion, you can go this extreem
