Cable for IO banks?
#1
Hello all,
I'm wondering if there is some product out there that can connect one of the data banks to a protoboard. Honestly, I'm surprised this isn't offered as a basic product given the likelihood that one will connect to external hardware. What I'm hoping to find is something like this one that is available for the Raspberry Pi GPIO bank:

Thanks!

Yes, I agree with you completely Shantzis62. A solution could be a Br Board with a T-Cobbler cable attached to it, and yes, I am also surprised something like that was not offered from the beginning. It should still allow the Io Board to be used on top of the Cobbler Br Board.

If you are willing to do some soldering, I used an old 24-pin Rasppi T-Cobbler, cut off one end of the cable and soldered the 24 wires of the ribbon cable to a Br Board. That gave me 17 general purpose connections which I could use on a breadboard. It is not pretty, but it works. If you are careful with the soldering, you can still attach the Io Board on top of your new T-Cobbler Br Board.

Bye!

My plan is to buy the Br element and solder male headers in all the holes to give me access to all of the GPIO. It'll be a lot of soldering, but I like the idea of having access to all of those pins!

A Br with pre-soldered or installed headers would be very convenient. The cobbler idea is another great idea.
