BrickPi3 can now be stacked!



I’m not sure what would have caused the issue you described, but here are a few things I would recommend checking.

  • Ensure the BrickPi3 boards are stacked correctly, with proper header pin alignment and adequate depth.
  • Power each BrickPi3 with it’s own battery pack, with both power switches in the ‘ON’ position.
  • Make sure the RPi header pins are configured for the BrickPi3: enable SPI, and ensure the SPI pins are configured for SPI communication rather than as GPIOs.

If the issue re-surfaces, try the above, and report back if it’s still not working.


Somehow after they’ve been both shutdown for a few hours the issue disappeared and everything worked as expected! Thanks.
