Optional Parts for PassMe

NOTE: New CPLD Code no longer makes use of LEDS!!!

These parts are not strictly required for the PassMe to work. They are primarily for debugging your circuit as you are building it. The ones I make for sale do not include these additional parts, because I program the CPLD and test it before shipping the unit and know that the unit is working.

All of these parts are available at Pricing and product numbers were accurate as of 7 March 2005.
