I have a lopy4 sitting in a pysense2 board and it appears to all be working without issue. I wasn’t really paying attention when I bought the bits though, as I’m reasonably allergic to soldering and didn’t figure on how to actually hook up the paraphernalia it.
I note with unfounded optimism that the pysense has a “Sensor Header” / “pyport”, which looks like a little 6 pin connector, the style of which I’ve not seen before. Looking at the spec sheet (Pysense 2.0X) it has:
- P9 (EXT_IO_1)
- P15 (SENSOR_INT)
so… can I use say, P15 to hook up to a switch? And say, P9 to drive a LED? And so, I’d just be using a little plastic plug and not putting the soldering iron near the pysense?
Or do I need to bite the bullet, and solder something to the External IO and use that?
I guess I’ve resigned myself to soldering something onto the External IO Header and then I can use DuPont connectors to keep going…?
Last question… the PiicoDev OLED module I have (PiicoDev OLED Display Module (128x64) SSD1306 | Core Electronics Australia) - can I drive that via the “Sensor Header”? What kind of plug is it, and is there an adapter I can buy that goes between the 4 pin SH plug PiicoDev stuff and the 6 pin PyPorts?
