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″
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
