#REDIRECT [[RPi Expansion Boards]]
On the Raspberry Pi, there are several connections which can be used for expansion:
* The [[RPi Low-level peripherals|Rpi GPIO]] (General Purpose Input/Output) pins are exposed, that means that expansion boards are able to talk directly to the CPU.
* The DSI connector will allow low-level interfacing with LCDs and other displays.
* The CSI connector will allow camera modules to be added in future.

::''main page: [[Rpi Gertboard]]''
This board is a buffer between your Rpi and the real world, use it to flash LEDs on and off, drive motors, run sensors and all that other fun stuff.<ref>http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/411</ref>
[http://piface.openlx.org.uk Piface] is simpler than the [[Rpi GertBoard]] (it's aimed at less experienced users), but also intended to connect to PCs and Android to be platform agnostic
===CJE/4D RTC===
On 2nd January 2012, CJE/4D announced that they have a real-time clock (RTC) expansion board in the works: [http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/features-and-requests/rtc]
