BoosterPacks are modular plug-in boards that fit on top of the LaunchPad baseboards. These modules introduce new functionality to the LaunchPad evaluation kits including wireless, capacitive touch, LED lighting, and more. BoosterPacks include everything needed to create compelling new applications based on the LaunchPad evaluation kits, including a plug-in module, software, & documentation.
BoosterPacks are available for various applications and functions, and many BoosterPacks are supported by all LaunchPad variants. Each BoosterPack is provided in standard 100mil pitch, making it easy to connect to breadboards for quick prototyping, and they are available with 20-pin or 40-pin counts.
Multiple BoosterPacks can plug into an MCU LaunchPad Evaluation Kit. BoosterPacks can be placed on different docks or stacked vertically. This is especially useful when BoosterPacks need to share a common SPI or I²C bus. Be sure to check each BoosterPack to ensure compatibility.
