Luke Wren’s Surface-Mount Pico DVI Sock Brings Video Output Capabilities to the RaspberryPi Pico

Compact surface-mount add-on offers a fully-functional DVI video output without sacrificing breadboard compatibility.

Engineer Luke Wren has released design files for a handy Raspberry Pi Pico upgrade, giving the low-cost microcontroller a DVI video output with a minimal increase in footprint: the Pico DVI Sock.

“[I] called it a Sock because it’s like a HAT [Hardware Attached on Top, a standard for add-ons which fit on the Raspberry Pi single-board computer family’s 40-pin general-purpose input/output (GPIO) header] but small and on the bottom,” Wren explains of the board, which adds little more than the size of an HDMI socket to the end of the host Raspberry Pi Pico.
