I don't know what the best thing was before sliced bread, but sliced bread was the best thing before these
IDC connectors don't work well with breadboards, because the pin spacing is all wrong. In one of our tutorials we recommend taking a IDC connector with right angle leads and bending the leads to make it fit. It looks like a mess, but it does work. Using this connector is so much better.
All you need to do is crimp a 10 way ribbon cable onto this connector and push the connector straight into your breadboard. Seriously it is that simple!
If you are interesting in a cable already made up, we have them too.
