Raspberry Pi covered in ham and egg

An innovative bareboard computer enclosure platform allows electronics designers, for the first time, to cook up creations that bring together ham, egg and Raspberry Pi.

The egg-shaped design of Hammond Electronics’ 1593HAMEGG enclosures is ideal for designs based on Arduino and Raspberry Pi bareboard computers. Available in translucent blue, purple or black, they meet the needs of users searching for an alternative to traditional base and lid designs where the bareboard is mounted inside an enclosure.

In the innovative HAMEGG design the board is screwed into moulded studs located on the top of an egg-shaped base, giving stability and all-round unrestricted access to I/O connectors, often used controls, indicators and expansion boards; it also allows easy installation of EMC shields if required.

Initially, the new platforms are configured for the Raspberry Pi A, A+, B and B+ and the Arduino Uno, Due, Ethernet, Leonardo, Mega ADK, Mega 2560 and Yún. Board-specific versions for designs from other manufacturers active in this fast moving sector are in development and will be available in the near future.

The system also provides space for a battery holder for either three or four AAA batteries and, for added expandability and mobility, mountings are provided for a popular range of interlocking plastic bricks and wheels.
