GPIO extension cables, should I use them

Wed Jul 10, 2019 2:29 pm

I wanted to use a GPIO extension only cause I wanted to add a sound card but not have it sit on top, but I’m concerned about shielding or any interferences or if they have gold plated or shielded versions etc

How long are you talking about? If you put the amplifier close to the Pi, you shouldn't have much trouble with unshielded, non-twisted speaker hook-up wire.

If you have a problem with pick-up, use shielded cables.

I wouldn’t be using very long distance, I just wanted to place the sound cards at a different place within a mini case without it sitting on top of the pi etc, do they have shielded extension cables For GPIO
