40-pin GPIO to Breadboard

Hello all, 

 

Does anyone know a good way to connect the 40-pin GPIO sockets on the DE2-115 or SoCKit or HSMC/GPIO expansion card to a solderless breadboard? 

 

By good way I mean a way I can just order an appropriate part (Cable, connector, whatever) that will connect the board to the breadboard without having to create much if anything myself. 

 

Thanks! 

 

EDIT: See thread below for the solution.

somehow, my response to you never appeared. 

I found a cie who does sell 40 pins IDC to bread board sockets 

That you can use with a 40 pins flat cable. 

 

I use this with my DE NANO. 

 

I will post the info once this post appears (I am a new user)...

The part I am using is: 

 

 

ADIDC40-M 

 

Sold by technologicalart 

 

They do not sell the cable. I got the cable from eBay 

 

It'd you want the actual websites, send me a PM.

Just tried to post the direct url, no joy 

 

But just a Google search should do the trick. 

There must be other sources to. But I could not find one for 40 pins 

 

Spammers are poisoning forums, as it drives moderators to become 

Extremely cautious....

Found it. Ordered several. Great pointer. Shame the moderator won't allow a link because I looked for days before posting and giving up and you had exactly the right thing. Thanks again!

Glad it solved your issue. 

 

Maybe you should edit your initial post and mark this thread as [SOLVED]
