When I was younger, much, much younger than I am today I remember reading a novel about an ex-boxer turned petty crook who had been in so many fights that the author described him as having a face that only a mother could love. Every time I look at the MachXO3L Breakout Board, the version with SMA connectors, the description of the ex-fighter  comes to mind. It's not that the board is "that" unpleasing to the eye, it's that it just looks, well, so functional and business-like. 

My mother said to me, 'If you are a soldier, you will become a general. If you are a monk, you will become the Pope.' Instead, I was a painter and became Picasso - Pablo Picasso

In this blog post we gloss over the Board's less than exciting appearance and evaluate it solely on its functionality.
