The Raspberry Pi 400 is a powerful single-board computer with a built-in keyboard. Now, Adafruit has developed a Cyberdeck for it that sits above the keyboard. The expansion should be one of the simplest ways to add a small display without hooking the Raspberry Pi 400 to an external monitor.

The Raspberry Pi 400 is one of the Raspberry Pi Foundation's latest single-board computers and one that can easily double as an office PC thanks to its built-in keyboard and case. The Raspberry Pi 400 is also more powerful than the Raspberry Pi 4 Model B thanks to its newer components, as we have discussed previously.

Now, Adafruit has developed a simple add-on board for the Raspberry Pi 400 that the company dubs a Cyberdeck. The add-on board does not contain a display itself, but Adafruit sells multiple displays, including OLED ones that are compatible with it. Theoretically, you could use a large display, although the CYBERDECK Bonnet would probably be incapable of supporting its weight.

According to Adafruit, its CYBERDECK Bonnet has two STEMMA (JST 3-PH) connectors on GPIO pins 13 and 18 and 13, along with two STEMMA QT I2C port plugs should you wish to add other components. Currently, the CYBERDECK Bonnet is sold out, but Adafruit expects to have stock of its US$6.95 board soon. You can read more about how to use the CYBERDECK Bonnet here.
