Now that you've finally got your hands on a Raspberry Pi®
you're probably itching to make some fun embedded computer projects
with it. What you need is an add on prototyping Pi T-Cobbler from
Adafruit, which can break out all those tasty power, GPIO, I2C and SPI
pins from the 26 pin header onto a solderless breadboard. This mini kit
will make "cobbling together" prototypes with the Pi super easy.
Designed for Raspberry Pi Model B Revision 1 or Revision 2.
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.
The Pi T-Cobbler mini kit comes with a 26 pin ribbon cable
, a custom PCB, ribbon cable socket and header pins. A
little soldering is required to put it together but its really easy,
even a beginner can do it in 15 minutes so please click to read the
Once soldered together, the cable plugs 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 Adafruit Pi T-Cobbler is compatible with both versions 1 and 2 of the Raspberry Pi Computer
- for version 2 computers, note that the GPIO #21 has been replaced
with GPIO #27 and that the I2C pins are now I2C port #1 instead of #0.
All other pins are the same.
Please note, this kit only contains a 26 pin ribbon cable, a custom PCB, ribbon cable socket and header pins.
A Raspberry Pi, breadboard, breadboarding wires
, cables, components, case
, power supply, etc is not included! We do stock many of those items in the shop, so check those out as well!
What is the Raspberry Pi® ? A low-cost ARM GNU/Linux box.
The Raspberry Pi® is a single-board computer developed in the UK by the
Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of stimulating the teaching
of basic computer science in schools. The design is based on a Broadcom
BCM2835 system on a chip (SoC), which includes an ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz
processor, VideoCore IV GPU, and 256 megabytes of RAM. The design does
not include a built-in hard disk or solid-state drive, instead relying
on an SD card for booting and long-term storage. The Foundation plans to
support Fedora Linux as the initial system software
package/distribution, with support for Debian and Arch Linux as well - Wikipedia.
