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

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.
