If you have been lucky enough to get your hands on a Raspberry Pi mini computer already, you might be interested in a new Cobbler Breakout Kit created by Adafruit for the Raspberry Pi.
The Raspberry Pi Cobbler Breakout Kit has been designed by Adafruit to enable you to create embedded computer projects, allowing you to break out the GPIO, I2C and SPI pins from the 26 pin header onto a solderless breadboard.
The Adafruit Cobbler Breakout Kit for the Raspberry Pi comes supplied with a 26 pin ribbon cable, a custom PCB, ribbon cable socket and header pins, and only requires a little soldering to construct. Adafruit explains.
“The Cobbler can plug into any solderless breadboard (or even a prototyping board like the PermaProto). The 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.”
The Adafruit Cobbler Breakout Kit for the Raspberry Pi is now available to purchase for $7.95 and is currently in stock, check out the site for more information and to order.Filed Under: Geeky Stuff, Hardware
