This is a little like a breakout board but adds really important features that most don't have.
1. has terminating resistors on the serial lines : ) 2. has bulk capacitance on the VCC near the connection
the soldering quality is the best I've seen.
The documentation is clear. I am using this for SPI communication using Python and was able to get up and running very quickly. This board is going into professional test equipment for internal company/factory use.
