Raspberry PI add-on board - Gertboard

Gertboard order has been delayed

After a short wait my Gertboard has finally arrived. The package I assumed was the Gertboard was actually a gift from those fine people at Yorkshire Tea. Due to high demand the delivery of my Gertboard will now be 19th November, guess I’ll just have to experiment with the breadboard and LEDs for now.

The board comes in kit form, I’ll post on my progress assembling the kit.

Assembled Gertboard (determined mine will look like this)

The Gertboard is an expansion board for the Raspberry PI designed by Gert Van Loo (the guy that designed the original alpha hardware for the Raspberry PI). Gertboard expands the Raspberry Pi’s GPIO pins and will allow you to interface with the outside world.
