Expanding its ever-growing range of Feather Board accessories, Adafruit has this week announced the arrival of the Terminal Block Breakout FeatherWing Kit, which is now available to purchase via their online store and is priced at $14.95
The terminal block expansion board for the Feather Board range allows you to connect to any of the external Feather pins and can be used for both temporary or permanent installations. Adafruit has also provided a few extra terminal block pins for ground and 3.3V connections which are welcome and also very useful.
Adafruit explains a little more about the new Terminal Block Breakout FeatherWing Kit
The Terminal Block Breakout FeatherWing kit is like the Golden Eagle of prototyping FeatherWings (eg. majestic, powerful, good-looking). To start, you get a nice prototyping area underneath your Feather, with extra pads for ground, 3.3V and SDA/SCL. Not one to stop there, we expanded the PCB out to 2″ x 2.5″ with 3.5mm pitch terminal blocks down each side. There’s also four mounting holes so you can attach the breakout to your enclosure or project.
There’s a spot for soldering in a slide switch. This connects the EN pin to ground when in the ‘off’ position, cutting off the 3.3V regulator. Note that the FONA Feather uses both VBat and 3.3V as power supplies so you wont be able to fully turn off the FONA Feather with this switch.
