Gadgeteer plug-and-play makes electronics enjoyable but what if you want to use a module that is not gadgeteer-compatible? So quickly add the Breakout Module but other turn the non-gadgeteer into a real gadgeteer module. In this example @ Brett took a tech to speech module and then “gadgeteered” the module!
yes the board is a Tamiya mounting plate in LARGE.
The plastic screws are an eBay special. I bought a couple of different size stand offs in 100 packs, and a number of different lengths of the screws in 100’s too. I think they have much less potential for issues; I had used metal ones to mount something on a previous board (a Domino I think) and ended up shorting GND to power - although Gadgeteer has a keep out area that should be less of an issue, I just don’t like taking the chance.
it’s ok to do exactly that. Mine is talking to me right now using almost exactly those pins - although I have a custom Gadgeteer daughterboard that EMIC plugs into and gives me a screw-down connector for the speaker wires.
