Spoiler alert: Yes!

The High Speed Adapter is one of the four Accessories for the Digital Discovery. You have the 2×6 cable, 2×16 cable, High Speed Adapter and High Speed Probes. The 2×6 and 2×16 cables give you access to the Pmod style connectors, and access to the 32 pin connector, you’ll get one of each of these in your kit.
