Fritzing Library Update: Adafruit Pi Cobbler for Raspberry Pi
The Raspberry Pi is a neat piece of hardware, but it’s not so easy to breadboard with. To solve the problem, LadyAda created the Pi Cobbler breakout board, which makes it easy to breadboard your R-Pi circuits.
Fritzing is an open-source software package that (among other things) gives you a virtual breadboard where you can mockup designs before making them physical. To make it easier for you to use the R-Pi on your virtual breadboard, we created a Pi Cobbler for Fritzing (shown above, connected to a rotary encoder and LED).
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
