Spirilis @ 43oh.com forum would like to monitor his woodstove temperature profiles so he build a plugin board for LaunchPad using the MAX31855 thermocouple to digital converter.
This BoosterPack is fancied as a baseboard plugging underneath the LaunchPad, with four holes for mounting studs in case I ever decide to fix it inside a permanent enclosure (probably one made of aluminum due to the heat). I could have pushed the Thermocouple terminal blocks out a little further to fit more launchpads, as I feel this is a bit tight. I chose a Tiva-C LP for my pics because it fits nicely but the BoosterPack is designed with low-power features, contrary to the MAX31855’s own design.
