Great news yesterday with the launch of the new Raspberry Pi B+, in my eyes a vey well thought out upgrade. With upgrades comes anxieties such as can I use the same power supply, keyboard, add ons etc. Well the answer to that is fortunately YES to 95% of the peripherals, there will naturally be a few exceptions with the breakout boards. As mentioned here the GPIO has been expanded to 40 pins. So let me give you a quick list of breakout boards that we know fit and will work with the new Model B+.

⚠️

Care must be taken to position a 26 PIN breakout board on the B+ GPIO lined up starting from PIN 1 to the Left (see pics) ; you should NOT connect to PIN 27 → 40.

 

These boards are all fully compatible with Raspberry Pi Model B+
