The Raspberry Pi B+ 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 our great Model B accessories by hooking up our downgrade cable, its probably a good time to upgrade your set up and accessorize using all of the Model B+’s 40 pins.
That’s why we now carry the Adafruit Pi Cobbler Plus — Breakout and Cable for Raspberry Pi B+. It’s an add on prototyping Pi Cobbler from Adafruit specifically designed for the B+ that you 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.
Designed for use with Raspberry Pi Model B+ only and requires soldering!
This Cobbler is in a compact shape, which is the least bulky way to wire up. Once soldered together, the cable plugs between the Pi B+ computer and the Cobbler breakout. The Cobbler can plug into any solderless breadboard (or even a prototyping board like thePermaProto). 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.
Please note, this kit only contains a cobbler PCB, 40-pin ribbon cable (in slimming Adafruit Black), a 40-pin GPIO socket, and header strips. Raspberry Pi B+, 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!
