Pimoroni HyperPixel 4.0 - i2c connector changed?

Hi Core Electronics,

I recently purchased a Pimoroni HyperPixel 4.0 from you along with the I2C Cable, intending to use an i2c device with the display. However the cable doesn’t fit - in fact there’s now a 5 pin connector (adds INT - what is that?) which doesn’t resemble any connector I’m familiar with - see photo below.

For reference, here’s the shop page image:

So I need some help. What kind of connector do I need? What is the INT for?

Also for reference here’s the I2C cable (from the shop page):

Many thanks,

Hi Greg,

If you are using that connector you can just connect the four pins the the correctly labeled pins and it should work fine. My Guess is that Int is for interrupt and has something to do with advanced features n the board.

Hi Clinton,

Thanks for the thought. The on-board connector seems to be a female header, so the cable is not useful in my case - some “jumper jerky” should do the trick though (male to female in my case).

Fortunately I have these:
Jumper Wires 7.8" F/M (High Quality 30 Pack)

Since you associate the I2C cable kit (https://core-electronics.com.au/pimoroni-hyperpixel-4-0-i2c-cable-jst-ph-to-male-dupont.html) and the HyperPixel, you might want to put a suitable caveat or amendment on your shop page. I have no use for my one (although something may come up).


Update not specific to the I2C connector - I was having terrible trouble with getting the touch screen to map correctly to the screen position.

Turns out it was an issue related to Raspbian Buster. After many blind alleys I decided to inspect the https://github.com/pimoroni/hyperpixel4/ repo and, lo-and-behold, there is a “pi3-buster-fix” branch which seems to have fixed my issue. Not sure why there aren’t more links to this fix, it may be very new and not yet verified.
