When connecting electronic hardware like sensors, LEDs, or any other to the Raspberry Pi it can be tiring to keep looking up the pinout of the GPIO. A good solution is typing the command “pinout” on a Terminal Window and seeing it on the screen. However, an even better solution is to have a reference label right in your hand.
This PCB is a handy tool that makes connecting wires to the Raspberry Pi GPIO incredibly easy. It’s a reference board that allows you to see all the different pin labels for the 2×20 GPIO header on the Raspberry Pi. By placing it on the header or laying it by its side, you can quickly check that you’re connecting any wires or components correctly.
Using the “USB Ports” directional label to orient it correctly, you can simply slide it onto the 2×20 GPIO header or place it by its side, then you can plug in jumper wires with female sockets where they correspond!
- One side shows the GPIO numbers as corresponding on the microprocessor (e.g., GP7, GP11), and the other their numbers as corresponding on the header (i.e., 1~40).
