Raspberry Pi expansion board and cable (T-cobbler)
This product includes the 40Pin GPIO cable and GPIO T-adapter plate. If you are developing projects this will bake your life much easier and help you to not put components in wrong GPIO pins. It bridges out all 40-GPIO pins to aa breadboard.
Using the Raspberry Pi expansion board and cable.
How this works is that you plug the one end of the cable into your Raspberry Pi and the other end into the adaptor plate.
The adaptor plate fits perfectly into a breadboard like this one on our site. Now you can easily use a breadboard with your Raspberry Pi without having to worry about jumper cables between your microcontroller and breadboard. What is even neater is that all the pins are labelled on the adapter plate so you can quickly see where to put your components in relation to the GPIO pins.
