The Seeed Studio Grove Base Kit for Raspberry Pi is a beginners kit for beginners to get started with the Raspberry Pi in a fun and easy way.  It has 10 Grove sensors instead of 12 on Seeed’s GrovePi+ Starter Kit, but it also adds three sensors: Mini PIR motion sensor, moisture sensor, and servo. It lacks the Starter Kit’s sound, rotary angle, and button sensors, as well as the blue and green LEDs.

This Base Hat is based on the STM32 MCU which has a 12-bit 8-channel ADC and has 6-Digital, 4-Analog, 3-I2C, 1-PWM, 1-UART port and also GPIO pins same as the Raspberry Pi.
