Assembled Pi Cobbler Plus - Breakout Cable for Raspberry Pi B+
The Raspberry Pi B+ has landed on the Maker World like a 40-GPIO pinned, quad-USB ported, credit card sized bomb of DIY joy. And while you can use most of our great Model B accessories by hooking up our downgrade cable, its probably a good time to upgrade your set up and accessorize using all of the Model B+'s 40 pins. That's why we now carry the Adafruit Assembled Pi Cobbler Plus - Breakout and Cable for Raspberry Pi B+. It's an add on prototyping Pi Cobbler from Adafruit specifically designed for the B+ that you can break out all those tasty power, GPIO, I2C and SPI pins from the 40-pin header onto a solderless breadboard. This will make "cobbling together" prototypes with the Pi super easy. Designed for use with Raspberry Pi Model B+ only! No soldering required! This Cobbler is in a compact shape, which is the least bulky way to wire up. The cable plugs between the Pi B+ computer and the Cobbler breakout. The Cobbler can plug into any solderless breadboard (or even a prototyping board like the PermaProto). The Cobbler PCB has all the pins labeled nicely so you can go forth and build circuits without keeping a pin-out printout at your desk. We think this will make it more fun to expand the Pi and build custom circuitry with it. Please note, this product only contains an assembled Cobbler Plus and 40-pin ribbon cable (in slimming Adafruit Black). Raspberry Pi B+, solderless breadboard, breadboarding wires, cables, components, power supply, etc are not included! We do stock many of those items in the shop, so check those out as well! Note: The Raspberry Pi Model A+ is also compatible with this product!
Element 14 BeagleBone Black Rev C - 4GB - Pre-installed Debian
This is the Element 14 version of the BeagleBone Black Rev C. It's the exact same as our other BBB but if you have a preference of manufacturer, here's your chance to support our friends Element 14. If you liked the BeagleBone Black Rev B, you will love the Rev C! The Rev C still has a blistering 1GHz processor and 512MB onboard DDR3 RAM and like the old one it has a AM3359 microprocessor, two 46-pin headers, micro HDMI for audio/video output, USB ports, 10/100 Ethernet and other I/O features. The Rev C is an ultra-powered embedded computer that can fit in a mint tin. This model includes 4GB of eMMC built-in storage instead of the Rev B's 2GB. With the doubled storage and faster eMMC, the developers were able to make the Rev C's most significant change: shipping the BeagleBone Black with Debian Linux pre-loaded on the board's flash instead of Angstrom Linux. Debian Linux is a more user-friendly operating system than Angstrom and the switch to Debian is partly the result of consumer demand (especially from Adafruit users, thanks!) Of course the BeagleBone Black Rev C is an open board so if you want to load it back up with Angstrom or other Linux-based distributions like Ubuntu or Android, you can. The rev C comes with a mini-B cable for powering it up ASAP. No microSD card is included as the BBB has onboard flash storage - and no SD card loading is required to get started. For this revision, CircuitCo has also partnered with Element14 to try and offset some of the demand. We'll be filling in with more information on supported accessories as we test them for compatibility. For now we suggest picking up an enclosure, a 5V 2A power supply and a micro-HDMI cable. If you want to use it 'head-less', a USB console cable is suggested as the 'Black does not have an onboard USB-to-Serial converter like the original BeagleBone. If you need a nice display to go along with your 'Bone, Check out our fine selection of HDMI displays, we've tested all of them with the Beagle Bone Black Rev C The new BeagleBone Black Rev C ships with the Debian Linux w/the 3.8.13-bone kernel.
