The “poor woman’s” Raspberry Pi A+ / B+ cobbler! This combo of 2×20 pin (0.1 spaced) header and socket is for our popular GPIO Ribbon Cable for Raspberry Pi Model A+/B+ (40 pins). It comes in two parts, a ‘pin-through’ socket and a male header. The socket straddles the center of a breadboard or Perma-Proto and then header plugs into the top of the socket. Since IDC cables are so standard, but a royal pain to use with breadboards, this is a good and cheap hack for prototyping.
Works best when soldered in place. We have used these to prototype on a solderless breadboard but some customers report their breadboards don’t play nice with the shorter pins so your mileage may vary.
Each order comes with one socket and one header. Breadboard, Perma Proto and IDC cable not included!
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.
