Breakout Extension Module

Type: Connector
Inventory: 16 units
Pins: All optional

Warning: If you use this Extension, you should totally know what you are doing. It is easily possible to temporarily or permanently damage or destroy a BRIX₂ Base Module and/or connected Extension Modules if you screw it up. If in doubt, ask a developer!

The Breakout Extension Module is intended for prototyping. You want to connect something to a BRIX₂ Base Module that does not exist as an Extension Module yet? Use this module. All pins from the Extension header can be accessed. There are additional ground connections too. You can solder a two-row pinheader to the edge of the board in order to access the pins with a ribbon cable for example.

It is important to consider the power limitations when tinkering with the BRIX₂ Base Module.
