Cubieboard has thickness 2.00mm 2×20-pin-header that is not so suitable for home hobbiest.
Arduino and other small boards uses 2.54mm pin (0.100inch)
To connect it I have bought 2.00mm to 2.54mm 40pcs Wire Cable 2P to 1P.
| 2.00mm to 2.54mm (2P to 2x1P) wires|
Till it comes I will use my 2,54mm cables, you can connect 2 of them (not more) side by side:
Of course, you can buy BreadBoard For Cubieboard which would solve the issue here.
It would be very useful to buy something like this Connector (2.00mm to 2.54mm / 2×20):
I found it in this shop
but was not able to find it in eBay. If anybody has a better solution, please leave a comment.
