Q. How do you power the outputs externally?
A. Hi Keith, thanks for your question. Using this board you can only use the same power that powers the board. There is no provision for external power


Excellent Quality

I've used these boards to make small robots. Modified PCB to use serial programming using pickit3. The boards are versatile, well made and good value for money.
