    Dock board for Teensy

    Hi,

    With a friend we are recycling some old stick grips into standard USB joysticks using Teensy (LC, 3.2 and 2.0++).

    I would be interested in a dock board simply mapping Teensy pins to ethernet female connectors.

    Has ever someone realised something similar (dock for Teensy) ?
    I would be interested for any orientation, even producing such dock myself .

    You can get RJ45 (8p8c) connector to 0.1" breakout boards at various places. For example, from Sparkfun you could get both of these and then solder the PCB to a protoboard:

    Thanks for this idea with references.
    For the moment I still think a unique PCB would be better and make easier the box design around it.
    I think such PCB with RJ45 connectors you mentionned plus something like that with the right characteristics for Teensy would be cool .

    Back when I still used the Arduino Uno, I bought this from Adafruit, though I never actually soldered it together: https://www.adafruit.com/products/256.

    Sparkfun has a Teensy -> Arduino shield: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/13288

    Yeah, really great.
    The Sparkfun shield looks really close to what I'm interested in.
    Thanks a lot Michael.

    wouldn't a DIN connector be better than RJ45? (ps/2 style)
    a standard pin assignment for a given connector probably already exists..
