Programmable barcode scanner HAT for Raspberry Pi Pico

SB-Components recently launched a new Kickstarter campaign featuring a barcode scanner HAT for Raspberry Pi Pico along with a breakout barcode scanner board that can be used with any other microcontrollers or processors.

As per the Kickstarter campaign, this board can be used in a wide range of applications such as Library Management, POS billing management, and inventory management system. One can also use this board in keyboard emulation mode so you can just place your cursor on any excel sheet or google sheet, notepad, etc and start scanning the barcodes to increase productivity.
