board with male-male pins

Tue Oct 15, 2013 5:07 am

hi, Im developing my drone and I need to connect rpi with motors and sensors. So I need a ribbon cable from rpi gpio.
than i need to rearrenge some pin order to fullfill the sensor connector(for example the i2c sensor has got the 2 channels inverted respet the pi)
So im thinking to have a board with male connector for the rpi conn and another male for the devices conn.finally I ll solder the necessary jumper.Is there this type of board?
if there is better solution let me know.
Note: Breadbord is too big and heavy for my project.

well, something similar, but I need to invert some pins so the board should be without any circuit on it.

That board has no circuit on it. It's just an easy way to use a ribbon cable and either plug into a breadboard, or just have easy access to the pins.

It's very similar to this:

and this:

and this (which also duplicates the UART pins):

If you can't find what you want, can you make a small sketch and post it here? Maybe someone will have seen something similar.

Another option is to use pluggable wires, like this:

Why not using a piece of perfboard with male connectors and wiring only the signal you need?
