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.

What's in the Box?

  • Raspberry Pi B+ Cobbler-T Board
  • 40-pin Ribbon Cable

    This makes referencing the pinout a whole lot easier though need to be careful about the orientation of the pi when connecting to the ribbon as there is no way to tell (easily) which end is which! (Posted on 18/09/2017)

    I love being able to have the labeled breakout of the Pi GPIO right on my breadboard where I want it. It keeps my prototypes neater and more about the prototype itself.

    Great in conjunction with Solderless Breadboard - 830 Tie Point (ZY-102). (Posted on 23/08/2017)

    A great way to easily get access to the Raspberry Pi GPIO pins on a breadboard (preferably a big one as it takes up a bit of room). The pins are clearly labelled on the board so there is no confusion about which you are using. (Posted on 11/05/2017)
