RedBear IoT pHAT for the Raspberry Pi

Although this HAT will work on any 40-pin Raspberry Pi, it was "designed to fit perfectly on the Pi Zero." The IoT pHAT adds WiFi (802.11n, 2.4GHz) and Bluetooth (classic and BLE), which means you can remove the USB OTG cable and USB hub from your Pi Zero and use a wireless keyboard and mouse instead. In addition to an internal antenna, the HAT has an external antenna socket that is activated by a switch to extend your Bluetooth and WiFi range. The IoT pHAT is less than $13 at the RedBear website.

    We are living with an embarrassment of choice. Small-board computers (SBCs) are getting smaller and faster, with many inexpensive options for the hobbyist and problem-solvers and more powerful, usually pricier, options for inventors, innovators, and CPU-guzzling consumers. New SBCs are entering the market continuously, it seems.
