Give your Pi some reach with this GPIO extender cable, which has two matching connectors on the end of a 12" (300mm) long gray cable. Plug one end into your Pi and the other end will have a boxed male header you can plug in a Pi Plate that is expecting to go onto a Pi. This cable is not compatible with the Raspberry Pi Model B+
Please note! Some electronics do not like having a 12" long cable involved where they are expecting a short connection - it can add quite a bit of resistance, capacitance and noise to some protocols. For example, many i2c devices (and especially our 16x2 LCD Plate for Pi) may not work or may work poorly with this cable and high speed (1MHz+) SPI may have some ringing.
