This breakout board brings all 26 pins of its male dual row header out to screw terminal blocks for easy connection and prototyping work. Each pin is also brought to solder pads (5 per pin) at 0.1" spacing, allowing easy addition of standard single row pin headers. Please note that the breakout boards are manufactured with a connection between each connector pin and the corresponding screw terminal; no soldering of any type is necessary. The solder pads simply provide an area for making optional connections to headers or other components.
This breakout board is perfect for experimentation and prototype work, as well as for use in the educational laboratory. It is well-suited for interfacing with data acquisition equipment or any other devices that use a 2x13 26-position header connector. A dual row header is sometimes referred to as an "IDC Header", "IDC connector", or "ribbon cable connector". A breakout board is sometimes referred to as a "transition module", "terminal board", or "interface module".
