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 created 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. In addition to the Prototype Board and breadboard, 6 prototype leads are also included.
The board exposes the eight data lines from the microcontroller port in addition to the various power connections V, 3V3, 5V and GND via turned pin sockets, allowing linking of circuitry using single core wire.
If using this board with First Generation upstream E-blocks, then you will need an E-blocks upstream to E-blocks2 downstream connector.
