I'm looking for a carrier board for the BS2, not the typical Parallax boards but something much smaller.ˇ I would really like to find something about the size of the BS1 version DX board.ˇ Needed items are a very small proto type area (similar to the BS1 board), serial plug, pads for the first 8 I/O's and a vinˇand GNDˇpad.ˇ Does anyone know of someone who has designed such a board I can purchase.ˇˇ If it's what I need, I would be interested in a volume buy of them.ˇ I'veˇtried to use the BS1 and it's just not fast enough for my application.ˇ I know nothing of designing my own boards and don't want to have to learn for this project.
Thanks!ˇ

Maybe the MoBoStamp-pe (http://www.parallax.com/detail.asp?product_id=28300) will work for you. It measures 2.75" x 1.35", has a connector for Vin and Gnd, and sockets for various port pins. It doesn't have a proto area, but a prototyping daughterboard will be available soon. The daughterboards plug into 2mm sockets, so the MB/DB vertical profile is quite compact. Also, in lieu of an RS232 port, it has a USB port (which can power the entire board, BTW).

Update: Added a datasheet for the Proto-DB.
