Ready to Build

These are lures that are functionally complete, but are not being (or not currently) in production and/or available to buy. To be in this state the lures need to be in a state where an individual has enough information to fully build these on their own.

Cuttle(bone) Lure

Adapter from Low Speed Connector I/O (I2C,I2S,UARTs,SPI,GPIO) to BeagleBone * Capes. Works with a variety of Capes but not all.

  • Features:
    • low speed adapter for MAX to BeagleBone capes
  • Produced by: Tom King
  • Additional Information: none available right now

Tadpole Lure

A small low speed adapter with and RGB (gpio controlled) LED, along with a small prototyping area. For more information including assembly information visit the Tadpole Lure Wiki Page

  • Features:
    • GPIO controlled RGB LED

Planned Lures

These are lures that are either in the planning or early design stages and are not ready for production.


These are lures that do not have build files available, but information pertaining to them is still pertinent.

Ika Lure

The Ika lure takes the existing low speed I/O and expands it (through I2C chips) to allow for an Arduino compatible shield to be used with the MinnowBoard MAX.
  • Features:
    • Electrically Arduino Compatible
    • 3.3v & 5.5v tolerant (flipped via jumpers)
