• 26 pin layout breakout board for Raspberry Pi
• Allows easy and effortless prototyping for your Raspberry Pi projects
• All pinouts on the breakout are clearly labelled
• The Breakout board spacing allows for it to fit perfectly into any breadboardWhat does this GPIO Breakout board add to my Raspberry Pi?
The GPIO Breakout board allows you to make connections between electronic components and your Raspberry Pi a lot more easily.
The GPIO pins on the Raspberry Pi are not always easy to access, and this becomes even more difficult when you want to add and remove electronic components on an ad-hoc basis.
This board eliminates that problem by providing a way to connect to your Raspberry Pi board with non-permanent like a breadboard.
When the Raspberry Pi pins are accessible through this platform, this opens the door for prototyping. This is a great way to unleash your creativity with ideas and develop skills in building electronics with freedom to re-adjust your setup and mistakes along the way.
What can I use the GPIO Breakout board for?
The GPIO Breakout board is a fantastic tool for using in schools and educating the young about the setup of electronic projects and embedded computing. It also makes the ideal companion for an electronics hobby enthusiast who wants to re-use electronic components with their Raspberry Pi. The flexibility of options means this board provides endless possibilities of creative projects.
Some initial soldering is required to put the board together but with the guide sheet, a complete beginner can do it within 15 minutes. When assembled, you can use your Raspberry Pi via the GPIO board to control a set of LEDs or even display a message across an LCD display.
What can I connect the GPIO Breakout Board to?
This breakout board is compatible with any Raspberry Pi models that use a 26 pin or 40 pin GPIO. For the 40 pin models, however, a number of the remaining pins will be inaccessible.
This board’s spacing matches the central reservation spacing of a breadboard, which allows you to connect your Raspberry Pi to the rest of your project without the risk of short-circuiting its terminals.
