It's here! The Breakout Board for the Sun SPOT system! Based on the open sourced version of the revision C board found at https://spot-breakout.dev.java.net. The Sun SPOT features a 20-pin header on the eDemo board that allows interfacing various sensors and actuators. Unfortunately this connector is small and near many delicate parts making it risky to add wires or other components.

The breakout board eliminates the fuss of making use of the I/O signals by providing reliable terminal blocks, RC servo connectors, vEx™ system servo connectors, two large actuation switches and a RS-232 level shifter with DB9 type male connector.

Now you can easily connect virtually anything up to your Sun SPOT system in minutes instead of hours.
