Coming Soon – Adafruit Pi T-Cobbler Plus Kit – Breakout for Raspberry Pi B+ / Adafruit Pi Cobbler Plus Kit- Breakout Cable for Raspberry Pi B+

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 T-Cobbler Plus – Breakout + Cable for Raspberry Pi B+. This Cobbler is in a fancy T-shape, which is not as compact, but is a little easier to read the labels.

The T-Cobbler Plus is an add on prototyping board from Adafruit specifically designed for the B+ that 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.

The Pi T-Cobbler Plus kit comes with a 40 pin ribbon cable, a T-cobbler PCB, a 40-pin GPIO socket, and some male header strips.

Once soldered, you can plug the 40-pin GPIO cable between the Pi computer and the T-Cobbler breakout. The T-Cobbler can plug into any solderless breadboard (or even a prototyping board like the PermaProto). The T-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 T-Cobbler is coming soon! Sign up now.

Also coming soon! Sign up now.

Both cobblers are designed for use with Raspberry Pi Model B+ only and requires soldering!

And please note: 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!
