Item# 443000


As-shipped, the kit is a fully functioning OBD-II to USB interface that supports all OBD-II protocols and works with any ELM327-compatible software.

The Interconnect Board features UART and USB interfaces, an OBD breakout with access to all all 16 OBD port lines, three module slots with breakout headers, and a number of configuration jumpers and test points.

The unique modular design offers considerable flexibility, allowing engineers to quickly evaluate, prototype, and verify the major circuit blocks.
