Touch pHAT

Touch pHAT is a simple add-on for your Pi or Pi Zero that includes 6 touch sensitive pads. Use it to add touch control to your projects.


Full install (recommended):

We've created an easy installation script that will install all pre-requisites and get your Touch pHAT up and running with minimal efforts. To run it, fire up Terminal which you'll find in Menu -> Accessories -> Terminal on your Raspberry Pi desktop, as illustrated below:

Finding the terminal

In the new terminal window type the command exactly as it appears below (check for typos) and follow the on-screen instructions:

curl | bash

Alternatively, on Raspbian, you can download the pimoroni-dashboard and install your product by browsing to the relevant entry:

sudo apt-get install pimoroni

(you will find the Dashboard under 'Accessories' too, in the Pi menu - or just run pimoroni-dashboard at the command line)

If you choose to download examples you'll find them in /home/pi/Pimoroni/touchphat/.

Manual install:

Library install for Python 3:

on Raspbian:

sudo apt-get install python3-touchphat

other environments:

sudo pip3 install touchphat

Library install for Python 2:

on Raspbian:

sudo apt-get install python-touchphat

other environments:

sudo pip2 install touchphat


If you want to contribute, or like living on the edge of your seat by having the latest code, you should clone this repository, cd to the library directory, and run:

sudo python3 install

(or sudo python install whichever your primary Python environment may be)

In all cases you will have to enable the i2c bus.
