The Raspberry Pi A+/B+/Pi 2/Pi 3/Zero has landed on the Maker World like a 40-GPIO pinned, quad-USB ported, credit card sized bomb of DIY joy. And while you can use most of Adafruit's great Model B accessories by hooking up Adafruit's downgrade cable, its probably a good time to upgrade your set up and accessorize using all of the Pi's 40 pins.
That's why Adafruit now carry the Adafruit Pi T-Cobbler Plus Kit - Breakout + Cable for Raspberry Pi. This Cobbler is in a fancy T-shape, which is not as compact, but is a little easier to read the labels. We also have the more compact original Cobbler.
We also carry a Pi T-Cobbler for Raspberry Pi that does not require soldering!
The T-Cobbler Plus is an add on prototyping board from Adafruit specifically designed for the newer Raspberry Pi computers with a 2x20 connector, that can break out all those tasty power, GPIO, I2C and SPI pins from the 40-pin header onto a solderless breadboard. This set will make "cobbling together" prototypes with the Pi super easy.
The Pi T-Cobbler Plus kit comes with a 40 pin ribbon cable, a T-cobbler PCB, a 40-pin GPIO socket, and some male header strips.
Once soldered, you can plug the 40-pin GPIO cable between the Pi computer and the T-Cobbler breakout. The T-Cobbler can plug into any solderless breadboard (or even a prototyping board like the PermaProto). The T-Cobbler PCB has all the pins labeled nicely so you can go forth and build circuits without keeping a pin-out printout at your desk. We think this will make it more fun to expand the Pi and build custom circuitry with it.
Designed for use with any 2x20 connector-style Raspberry Pi and requires some soldering!
The Raspberry Pi, solderless breadboard, breadboarding wires, cables, components, power supply, etc are not included! we do stock many of those items in the shop, so check those out as well!
