The Downstream Board – Prototype Projects allows for easy addition of custom circuitry into the E-blocks2 system.
The Prototype Board (BL0117) provides an array of standard 2.54mm pitch holes which can be used to permanently solder electronics onto the E-blocks board. The board is also supplied with a small breadboard allowing for temporary electronics to be create and tested with the E-blocks2 system. The small breadboard features a sticky back so it can be attached to the top of the Prototype E-blocks2 circuit board if required. 6 prototype leads are also included with this board.
The board exposes the eight data lines from the microcontroller port as well as the various power connections +V, 3V3, 5V and GND via turned pin sockets suitable for linking to your circuitry using single core wire.
E-blocks to E-blocks2
If using this board with First Generation upstream E-blocks, then you will need an E-blocks upstream to E-blocks2 downstream connector.
