The BitBoard is a breadboard add-on module that allows users to build custom circuits and user interfaces for the BitRanger. It is solidly attached to the bitRanger and provides performance-friendly stability. It either comes just on its own, or with with 2 pots, 2 buttons and 4 switches which can help you to start designing your own bitRanger interface.
The bitBoard is closely linked to a project called OMSYNTH which is a breadboard based open modular synthesizer by Casper electronics. Several tutorials on how to make circuits are available on the OMSYNTH webpage.
