  • 6 external test point headers
  • Easily access and test signals passing through
  • 6-pin Pmod port with GPIO interface

Functional Description

The PmodTPH is a great way for users to get easy access to signals coming in and out of the system board by acting as an intermediate between the system board and the peripheral component.

Interfacing with the Pmod

The PmodTPH is a pass through module, making it essentially equivalent to a set of six wires coming from the system board with center taps that users can attach their multimeter probes to. Consequently, there is no particular protocol that is associated directly with this Pmod. PmodTPH Block Diagram

Pinout Description Table

Pin Signal Description
1 P1 Signal 1
2 P2 Signal 2
3 P3 Signal 3
4 P4 Signal 4
5 GND Power Supply Ground
6 VCC Positive Power Supply

As there are no integrated circuits on this Pmod, any external power that is usable with the system board can be applied to the PmodTPH.

Physical Dimensions

The pins on the pin header are spaced 100 mil apart. The PCB is 1 inch long on the sides parallel to the pins on the pin header and 0.8 inches long on the sides perpendicular to the pin header.

Additional Information

The schematics of the Pmod TPH are available here.

As the Pmod TPH is a just a pass through module with additional contact points to monitor the signals and does not modify the signals in any way, there is no appropriate code to demonstrate how to use the the Pmod TPH.
