Raspberry Pi Wedge GPIO Expansion (SparkFun)

AED 99.00



The SparkFun Pi Wedge GPIO Expansion is a versatile and compact board specially designed to simplify and enhance prototyping with the Raspberry Pi. By connecting to the 40-pin GPIO connector on the Raspberry Pi, it effectively breaks out the pins into a breadboard-friendly arrangement, making it easier to create and test electronic circuits.


Package includes:

  • 1x Preassembled SparkFun Pi Wedge
  • 1x GPIO Ribbon Cable (40-pin, 6")



  1. GPIO Breakout and Breadboard Compatibility: The Pi Wedge provides a convenient breakout of the Raspberry Pi's GPIO pins, allowing easy connection to a standard solderless breadboard. It ensures proper spacing and alignment for seamless integration with SparkFun's medium, large, and extra-large breadboards.
  2. Built-in Serial Connector: The Pi Wedge incorporates a built-in serial connector, enabling effortless connection to an FTDI Basic module. This feature simplifies the communication setup, streamlining the prototyping process and eliminating the need for additional wiring.
  3. Decoupling Capacitors: The board includes decoupling capacitors on the power supply lines to ensure stable and reliable performance during prototyping. These capacitors help in reducing noise and potential voltage fluctuations.
  4. Broad Compatibility: The Pi Wedge is compatible with various Raspberry Pi models, including A+, B+, and RPi2, ensuring broad compatibility with different versions of the Raspberry Pi.
  5. Preassembled Design: The Pi Wedge comes preassembled, eliminating the need for any soldering. This beginner-friendly feature allows users to start prototyping with the Raspberry Pi immediately without any additional assembly steps.
