Why are There Header Pins on the FX2/FX2LP Development Board?

Version 1
    Question: Why are there header pins on the FX2 development board and what purpose do they serve?

     

    Answer:

    The six headers P1-P6 serve three purposes.

    1. They mate with the prototyping board supplied in the FX2 Development Kit.
    2, They allow direct connection of HP (Agilent) Logic Analyzer pods (Agilent P/N 01650-63203).
    3. They allow general purpose probing by other logic analyzers or oscilloscopes.
