This is the SparkFun RJ11 Breakout, two simple breakout boards for the common 6-pin RJ11 connector. These little boards can easily have one of our RJ11 6-Pin Connectors to work with common telephone cables. Each board features standard B/R/Y/G (Black/Red/Yellow/Green) labels on the top of the board to match a standard telephone wire. Additionally, each board has pin numbers on the back side that match with the pins on the connector.
Each breakout consists of two boards -- one for each end of the connections -- as well as mounting holes to help you secure your project in place.
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: Rookie - The number of pins increases, and you will have to determine polarity of components and some of the components might be a bit trickier or close together. You might need solder wick or flux.

Easy to use as long as you get the SparkFun RJ11 6 pin connectors too, which fit perfectly. Random RJ11 connectors may not fit the breakout board.
Used to replace damaged RJ11s in a telephone switch box.
I really like how compact these are and they work well.
