empowering creative people

As with many things in technology, breakout boards are here to make life easier by adapting many components and parts to a breadboard friendly format.

Analog to Digital

Measuring lots of analog signals takes up resources and pins, however, you can easily add more channels and separate processing with an external ADC.
