Hoof Special for NodeMCU




NodeMcu is not very good on a classic breadboard.
I built a minibreadboard for it.

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Neccessary Material:

Flat cable from old computers desktop.

I used 34 flat cable pins but it is possible to use more pins (40 or 50pins for example).

Step 2: Work the Cable.

Push the second connector next to the first one and crimp it.

Step 3:

Cut the cable to about one centimeter with a scissor.

Spell it! Pay attention with the cutter! Do not use too much force.

After marking the sheath, move it several times up and down.

Step 4: Final Step

Solder the flat cable in pairs: 1 with 2, 3 with 4, .......

Isolate with insulating tape.

Step 5:

I hope it can be useful.

Ciao from Italy.

    This is really a very smart idea to reuse the old computer flat cables. I have a lot of them and I will surely try it!
    PS I love the final touch of the color choice for the three cables in the last picture!

    Hi, Your project may be simple. But, you are a genius with this idea of re-usage of PATA HDD kabels / Floppy cables. Success en hope to hear from you with such good ideas.
