Pi Wedge - Breakout For Raspberry Pi GPIO Connector
This is the Pi Wedge, a small board that connects to the Raspberry Pi’s 26-pin GPIO connector, and breaks the pins out to breadboard-friendly arrangement and spacing, and even adds a couple of decoupling capacitors on the power supply lines. The “Wedge” also makes the initial bringup process easier - you can plug an FTDI Basic module into the built-in serial port. Each Pi Wedge comes as an easy to assemble kit that can can be inserted into the Raspberry Pi’s GPIO port that allows you to prototype as soon as you are done soldering.
It adapts the GPIO header on the Pi to a standard solderless breadboard, such as our meduim, large and extra large breadboards. While it will technically with with a mini breadboard, it won't leave much room for external circuitry.
This part was created in Eagle v6.5.0. Software examples were developed using the WiringPi libraries and utilities.
- /Hardware - All Eagle design files (.brd, .sch, .STL)
- /Software - C source code for SPI, I2C and GPIO examples. All use WiringPi for the underlying device interfaces
