Adafruit Raspberry Pi Cobbler or T-Cobbler

Adafruit Raspberry Pi T-CobblerThe Adafruit Raspberry Pi T-Cobler allows you to connect a Raspberry Pi to a breadboard using one ribbon cable.  The ribbon cable connects to the top of the T, and the verticale part plugs in to the breadboard.

The slightly older version isn;t T-shaped and I found the ribbon cable kept getting in the way.

There are also a few cheapper versions now appearing.

    Often the image shows an assembled Cobbler when, in fact, it’s really a kit which you’ll need to solder together (very fiddly, in my opinion). Some are even described as an assembled kit. How does that work?

    Avoid the T-Cobbler variants that have the pairs of 3V3 and GND pins at the ends of the T-bar. Often the description of these says that they are suitable for ‘standard’ breadboards’ whatever they are. The only true claim about this statement is that the pins are at 2.54mm spacing. Don’t assume that these power pins at the ends of the T-bar will engage in the distribution rails on, for example, the BB400 boards. The chances are they won’t.

    • Easiest way I’ve found to solder the T-Cobler is to put the headers in to a breadboard first and solder the T-Cobler circuit board then.

      Agree on the 3v3 rails. The coblers with 3v3 rails never seem to line up correctly with the breadboards.
