Raspberry Pi 3 GPIO Pin Layout

Posted by Greg on Feb 26, 2016

Now that you have the new Raspberry Pi 3, a chart mapping out the GPIO Pins would be handy wouldn't it? We thought so and created this quick guide!

 

Definitions:

Power - These pull power directly from the Raspberry Pi 3
Ground - Pins used to ground your devices. You can use any of them as they are all connected to the same line.
UART (Universal Asynchronous Receiver / Transmitter) - Serial pins that are used to communicate with other devices.
I2C (Inter-Integrated Circuit) - Pins that allow you to connect and talk to hardware modules that support I2C protocol. 
SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface Bus) - Pins that allow you to connect and talk to hardware modules that support SPI protocol. 
GPIO (General Purpose Input / Output) - Standard pins that can be used to turn devices on and off.

As much as I would like to put this GPIO chart to use, I can't. I'm still waiting for my Raspberry Pi 3 order to ship. At this point, I would just really appreciate any kind of an order update or an 'expected in the warehouse' date.

Sorry for the delay. We are receiving a large shipment of Raspberry Pi 3's today and anticipate having all back orders shipped out by this Friday.
