This screw terminal breakout adapter for a DB15 (sometimes also called DA-15) connector is designed to work with the MCP233, MCP236, MCP263, and MCP266 Advanced Motor Controllers. It can also be used as a generic breakout board for other hardware that uses the same connector, like old computer joysticks or MIDI devices.

This adapter breaks out connections from a 15-pin D-subminiature connector (popularly called DB15, but more properly DA-15) to a set of screw terminals, making accessing those pins easier during prototyping. The adapter is designed specifically to work with the MCP Advanced Motor Controllers that feature a DB15 connector: the MCP233, MCP236, MCP263, and MCP266. However, it could also be used as a generic breakout board for other hardware that uses the same connector, like old computer joysticks or MIDI devices (where it is called a game port).
