RPi GPIO ONE TO TWO WAYS CONNECTOR (Product Proposal)

by mchobby on Wed Feb 27, 2013 7:41 am

The problem is simple and I do not find a solution until now.
When you plug a Cobbler on a Pi then you cannot connect a PiFace ( http://mchobby.be/wiki/index.php?title=PiFace-Manuel ) .
When you connect a PiFace on a Pi then you cannot connect a Pi Cobbler.

However, there are situation where this should be quite usefull.
PiFace (that can be programmed under Python) uses SPI interface and I would like to use the I2C bus under Python (for AdaFruit LedBackPack, or AdaFruit LCD + Keypad).
This should be possible (from programming perspective)... but the issue in on the connector which does not allow to connect something + a Cobbler.
Note: the PiFace connector is already soldered... so no way to remove it and replace it :-(

Does anyone has an affordable idea?

sounds like it's time to break out the solder wick and prepare a list of your favorite expletives. once you've removed the offending part and exorcised your vocabulary you can install one of these.

(sparkfun once ran a blog entry on an interesting and particularly energetic method of solder removal. heat the solder, then slap the board on the table. i don't think this would be good for the mechanical relays on your board, though.)
