Interfacing the Raspberry Pi GPIO pins with a breadboard

Posted on Tuesday, August 28th, 2012 in dev boards, hacks by DP

Zuzebox writes in about Raspberry Pi’s GPIO pins:

There seems to be some misunderstanding about how h/w hackable to RPi is?

It’s got 17 i/o lines which is only 3 less than an Arduino which has 20 i/o. It’s got GPIO, UART, SPI, I2C and a single PWM. The only thing it lacks is analog i/o. Check out the stuff I’ve built for the Rpi on my blog

    or buy this one: http://www.adafruit.com/products/914
    was not very easy to find the IDC socket around here, and this one have also marked all pins on the gpio breakout.

    Hey, that’s my blog :-)
    I was wondering why I got 500 more hits than usual.
