Any word on the I/O expansion acorn board.

Just curious if anyone has heard anything. I'm at a crossroad right now where having it would be nice, but can probably make due by using other hardware.

Ethernet based i/o module is a separate board and will require Ethernet switch to be used in conjunction with existing Acorn board and gets you an additional 16 in and 16 out.

Very good to hear.

Any chance you can give an approximate size of the board. Just want to make sure I leave enough room in my cabinet.

Thanks

Great news, rough dimensions would be helpful to make room in cabinet for the future.

Wow - this sounds like a great add-on.

I thought the Acorn Board with CNC 12 controller software and wizard was outstanding...

Then I bought the Wireless Remote Plus Generator and my productive went up 10X....

With the additional IO channels the possibilities are enormous.

I have to say for the $, the centroid products are great value. I dabble in various car and computer hobbies and the centroid $ are some of the best i have spent.
