The COBRA experiment is a search for neutrinoless double-beta decay using CdZnTe semiconductor detectors. Currently COBRA is collecting data from 32 coplanar grid (CPG) detectors installed in the Gran Sasso National Laboratory. This serves as a prototype for a proposed design of over 100 kg target mass in order to achieve the sensitivity necessary to probe new parameter space for 0νββ. Pixelated detector allowing tracking and thus particle identification are also explored as a unique option in double beta searches.
