Pi Header Pins in use - How to Adapt PivotPi?


I have an Adafruit 7" Pi Screen which uses the Pi’s 5V and Ground Header pins to power the screen. Any idea how I can connect the PivotPi around this situation? What do you do when the required header pins are already in use?


Hello @trevhar

Assuming there are no conflicts in how the boards are used, you have a couple of choices. You could use Adafruit’s T-Cobbler and breadboard and wires or a header splitter like Triborg.

Or you can just wire your own cables around the Pi header pins but it’s not pretty.
