XMega dream dev board

XMega dream dev board

Realizations
My ideal xmega development board as it's completely application agnostic. It offers access to every pin and has easy to use FTDI access to 5 UARTs, plus 2 SPI and 2 I2C ports. There a no less than 5 ways to power the board, and it can convert anything between 3.6 - 15VDC to either 3.3V or 1.8V to suit the application, and it has some useful UI elements (LEDs and switches) that can be tied into any pin. I love this board and get lots done with it!
