NEW PRODUCTS – 12″ GPIO Extender and Tube Ribbon Cable for Raspberry Pi
NEW PRODUCT – 12″ GPIO Extender Cable for Raspberry Pi – Give your Pi some reach with this GPIO extender cable, which has two matching connectors on the end of a 12″ (300mm) long gray cable. Plug one end into your Pi and the other end will have a boxed male header you can plug in a Pi Plate that is expecting to go onto a Pi.
Please note! Some electronics do not like having a 12″ long cable involved where they are expecting a short connection – it can add quite a bit of resistance, capacitance and noise to some protocols. For example, many i2c devices (and especially our 16×2 LCD Plate for Pi) may not work or may work poorly with this cable and high speed (1MHz+) SPI may have some ringing.
Please note: These cables come with strain-relief clips that make the connector a bit taller than ‘classic’ GPIO cables. If you want to fit the cable into a Pi enclosure you may need to remove the top clips by cutting them off gently with diagonal cutters/nippers and pulling the plastic off.
Max Dimensions: 323.85mm / 12.75″ x 34.92mm / 1.37″
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
