Assembled Adafruit Pi T-Cobbler Plus - Breakout + Cable for Raspberry Pi B+!
The Pi T-Cobbler is an extension board designed to break out the 40 GPIO pins found on the Raspberry Pi B+ boards. It connects via a 40-pin ribbon cable directly to your Raspberry Pi and makes it easy to work with the pins on a breadboard. It requires no soldering and is ready to go for your next project!
So what's the big deal you may ask? Well, there are four main functions that make the Pi Cobbler a must-have when prototyping with your Pi:
- Cleans up the wiring from the Pi to a breadboard, and provides sensible grouping and easily identifiable labelling for every pin, reducing error and accidental short circuits.
- Protects your Pi from static damage. The Raspberry Pi GPIO pins are highly susceptible to any static discharge which can occur from direct handling. By connecting all of the GPIO pins to a breadboard first, you minimise the risk of any damage to your board.
- Many Raspberry Pi cases only have a small, low-profile gap for a ribbon cable to connect the GPIO pins, and jumper wires don't often fit, or you need to dismantle your case every time you want to connect something. The Cobbler allows you to connect things up as you like.
- The cobbler mounts onto the centre divider on solderless breadboards and gives easy access for breadboarding projects big and small.
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 Plus.

- Mass SD card Image Writer
We've built a mass SD card writer using a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, some USB hubs and SD card readers. This beast has enough ports to write 49 SD cards at once! At Core Electronics, sometimes logistics hang-ups mean that suppliers cannot meet our demand for pre-flashed SD cards. During these periods we have to pick up the slack by manually imaging blank SD cards we source ourselves. Of course, this is a super-tedious process, and ...
