This board is supposed to connect arduino shield to a Freescale Tower Bus system. Hopefully makable in the well-equipped hobbyist lab. It's got extra room for a protoboard layout as well. Not many signals are conveniently available. Too many of the pins that could have PWM or Analog in are already in use by peripherals that are part of the tower kit (CPU board + Ethernet/Com board.) And then SPI and I2C are in different places. But it might be fun.  (yes, this means I have a library with arduino footprints, and one with PCI-exp edges modified to the tower form fact and with modified signal names.)
