IDC connectors don’t work well with breadboards, because the row 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.
