The Audio App Board features a 16-bit, 48KHz stereo audio digital-to-analog converter driving two 1.5W class-D audio amplifiers and a low-noise switch-mode power supply with barrel jack.

Arduino Shield Adaptor

The Arduino Shield Adaptor offers a way to connect supported Arduino(R) shields to Galago plus a rugged but efficient switch-mode power supply with barrel jack. The board offers compatiblity with 3.3V-friendly Arduino Shields, and may work with some 5V shields depending on their I/O-level and power supply requirements. Check the specs of a shield prior to connecting.

Bluetooth App Board

The Bluetooth(R) App Board hosts a Bluetooth module implementing the SPP (Serial Port Profile) connected to Galago's UART. As a low-energy design, it relies on Galago's built-in power-supply. The Bluetooth App Board also features a breadboard-like 0.1" prototyping area that breaks out each Galago I/O pin.

Etherblock (Ethernet App Board)

The Ethernet App Board features the ENC28J60 Ethernet controller with integrated MAC and PHY, plus a switch-mode power supply with barrel jack input.

LED Driver App Board

The LED Driver App Board is powered by the TI TLC5940 16-channel, 12-bit constant-current PWM controller. This controller enables 4096-level brightness control of LEDs or precise control of up to 16 PWM-controlled servos.
