Phi-connect is a wire/cable management system for Arduino. It passes all Arduino connections to a breadboard with one cable. You can connect your Arduino to a project with just one step. Forget about reconnecting dozens of jumper wires when switching to a different project! You can switch from one project to another project in 3 seconds. How can you do that if you used jumper wires. You will also be able to mount phi-connect inside your project box. When you need your Arduino back, unplug it. You leave $4 worth of board inside your project box and reuse the rest on a new project. Anytime you miss you old project, plugging Arduino back in takes 3 second. Once the Arduino is plugged back in, your project springs into life!

The special features of phi-connect:
* Passes all Arduino pins to the breakout board to be plugged into breadboards or soldered inside a project box.
* 5V/GND pins directly plugs into power buses to power the breadboard and improves mechanical strength.
* Mechanical key on the cable prevents mistakes when inserting the cable.
* 12 additional 5V connections and 12 additional GND connections for using this as a switch board inside your project box.
The stack-able shield provides advantage so that you can stack any arduino shield above the stack-able phi-connect, benefiting from both shield functionality and neatly passing all your arduino pins to a breadboard for additional prototype space. Let's admit the proto-shield doesn't have enough space for any serious projects:).
The additional breakout board version is an accessory. If you want to use phi-connect on two more projects or installations, you can get two extra breakout boards with this option.
This breadboard/project box breakout board is 7.2cm in length. If you need smaller sized breakout boards I have a smaller version with only 5cm long in limited quantity.

If i order the kit listed in stock is it the old one? and if there are any old style breakout boards avaliable?
What is different on the Phi connect that is being redesigned? and will it be compatiable with the older breadbord breakout board?
