A range of connecting leads have been created to connect various peripherals (including interface boards and accessories) to the Kookaberry.
Kookaberry Board Connectors
The Kookaberry provides five open-source JST PH type connectors to plug peripherals into. Four, P1, P2, P4, P5, have three pins, and P3 has four pins. The allocation of circuit functions to the pins on each connector is shown below.
The 3-pin connectors can control only one peripheral at a time, but the 4-pin connector (P3) can be used to control multiple peripherals using the I2C protocol.
