The RasPiO® Portsplus 2 board is designed for the new Raspberry Pi B+. It labels the ports clearly for you so that you don’t need to count pins. This will help you avoid wiring errors and damage. You can slip it over the B+ GPIO header if you want, or hold it next to the header (many people do this – and this approach will also work for the older model A/B).
Port Numbers and Pin Numbers
RasPiO® Portsplus 2 has GPIO port numbers on one side and Pin numbers on the other side, so you can use whichever numbering system you prefer.
- You can use it as an attractive key-fob as well.
- At just 1mm thick, it leaves plenty of space for attaching your wires. It’s thick enough not to feel flimsy, but thin enough not to be clunky.
- RasPiO® Portsplus 2 fits inside the new Cyntech/ModMyPi B+ case. So to get going with your GPIO experiments, all you have to do is pop off the lid, slip on the RasPiO® Portsplus 2 and start wiring.
