These breakout boards bring all 24 pins and shield of a 24-pin Centronics connector out to double deck screw terminal blocks, providing quick and secure connections. Each pin is also brought to solder pads (3 per pin) at 0.1" (2.54mm) spacing, allowing the user to easily add pin headers. Please note that the breakout boards are manufactured with a connection between each connector pin and the corresponding terminal block position; no soldering of any type is necessary. The solder pads simply provide an area for making optional connections to additional headers or other components.
This breakout board is perfect for production applications as well as experimentation and prototype work. It is well-suited for interfacing with data acquisition equipment, computer systems, GPIB, HPIB, or any other devices that use the 24-pin Centronics connector.
Historically, the 24-pin Centronics connector was commonly used for interconnecting automated test equipment. This standard was created by Hewlett Packard and was called the Hewlett Packard Instrument Bus (HP-IB). As other manufacturers became involved, the standard became known as the General Purpose Instrument Bus (GPIB). It later became standardized as IEEE-488 Standard Digital Interface for Programmable Instrumentation. This breakout board contains this same 24-pin Centronics connector used in HP-IB / GPIB applications.
This 24-pin Centronics connector is also referred to as a CHAMP, Amphenol, GPIB, or HPIB connector. A breakout board is sometimes referred to as a "transition module", "terminal board", "terminal block", "breakout box", "breakout adapter", "terminator", or "interface module".
