I want to use analog signals with a Pi via the Sense HAT. Does the sense hat have an analog to digital converter (ADC)?
2A link to "sense hat" would be appreciated.– MatsKAug 29, 2017 at 11:02
The SenseHAT does not have any analog inputs. The ideal solution is to remove the standard GPIO header and fit an extra long, stacking one through the holes.
You can then look at wiring up, for example, an MCP3008 chip which will give you 8 analog inputs.
Removing the GPIO header from the sense hat? That's not easy, there's little space to work with.– MastFeb 18, 2018 at 15:04
You can just pull the female header on the underside off.– recanthaMar 27, 2018 at 20:10
1Yes, turns out it's not soldered in place. Works great :-)– MastMar 28, 2018 at 4:15
From the specifications or technical details I think no.
The sensors used are modern and I assume digitally.
If there should be an adc it's not intended for separate use.
But you can check yourself: recent RaspBian versions come with an emulator,
or check online
