|The NXT's RJ port with offset connector lock.|
I wanted to access the I2C, so I hacked up my "sound sensor" (microphone) to add a standard 0.1" header. But even as hacks go, it was ugly and only allowed access to 5 of the 6 pins.
However, a while ago the ECE department was getting rid of surplus parts, and among the reels of SMD resistors were a handful of header-to-RJ45 adapter boards that come with Microchip ICD programmers.
|Microchip, on the other hand, make this handy board with a normal RJ45 port.|
|The connector lock may be shifted, but the footprint is the same as RJ45.|
