The Cluster HAT is the perfect tool for modelling, testing and teaching small scale clusters. The Cluster HAT is designed to interface a controller (Raspberry Pi A+/B+/2/3) with 4 Raspberry Pi Zero's configured to use USB gadget mode.
Hello, I find this product interesting, but I'm unclear on how it works. How are the boards controlled? Thru the main pie? Do they get their own IP so I can SSH into them like normal? I building web based load balancing systems, and this would be a good development env for that.
The controller Pi bridges it's network connection with the cluster Pi Zero's. Each Pi Zero gets it's own IP address and runs in USB gadget mode. Each Pi Zero runs independently from one an other, and from the controller Pi as well. You will need specific software running on the controller Pi that "divides" up the work load and passes it to each Pi Zero to work on.
