Here is a really neat new gadget from SparkFun:

The Breakout Board for SC16IS750 I2C/SPI-to-UART IC (http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=9745), which allows adding another UART and communicating with it via I2C or SPI. I really want to get a couple of these to see if I can successfully add more UARTs to a microcontroller. I can see where adding one or more of these to a microcontroller board would be very beneficial. I want to use these with my BeagleBoard, Arduino, and Sanguino.

I bet these would be useful on any microcontroller board.. :D :D

I would agree with you 8-Dale. But let us hear from a pro about this.
