Expandability

StarBoard Orange does not need any other devices for general usage. But the board has great expandability.

External circuits can be added to StarBoard Orange if you want.

There is a user space under LCD.

The area of user space is 20x5. There are position numbers at the top of the board.

You just need to connect your external circuit to mbed using this user space.

You can see through holes for external circuit on the side of mbed.
