The TRS (tip ring sleeve) jack breakout is a simple board that allows a 1/4" stereo audio jack to be soldered on to gain easy access to all of its broken out pins. Makes jack easier to use with breadboards, and labels the connections to cut down on confusion about the normal connections. With this breakout you should find it less complicated to add a 1/4" jack to your home stereos or PA systems.
This board breaks out the all the pins you will need to gain access to your TRS jack including GND, T (tip), TN (tip neutral), R (ring), RN (ring neutral), S (sleeve), and SN (sleeve neutral). We've also included two mounting holes, which can easily be snapped off if need be, for your basic 4-40 type screw.
This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

The usual awesome quality, fit, and finish of a Sparkfun PCB board. Easy to solder, holes are breadboard and pin header spaced. The mounting holes are a huge plus where the jack itself is lacking, if you are only relying on the bezel to mount. It definitely needs this or to be hard soldered to a full PCB that's sized to your project. Having a small separate one like this though adds a lot of flexibility to your design.
