These simple boards bring all the I/O pins of the XMegaA4s out to your breadboard. Decoupling caps, a reset pullup and a PDI header are on all models.

There are three versions available (click on the pictures / links below for more details and documentation):

BreadMate Vanilla XMega PDI
This is the simplest version. It's essentially an XMega32A4, decoupling caps and a PDI header. Power is supplied by the Vcc/Gnd pins and could easily be run from a couple of AA batteries.
