The through hole boards are designed to expose many of the signals from the core SoM/SoC on breadboard-friendly 0.1" spaced headers. The board includes everything needed to function. The only requirement is that you provide 3.3V. This allows you to achieve lower power operation if your design requires it. If a module requires different voltages, the through hole boards include the needed regulators from 3.3V. Other components, like the I2C pull up resistors are not included to give you flexibility in your designs. Get started by visiting the support page and by checking the core product's datasheet.
The following summarizes what a through hole board provides:
Keep in mind that the board cannot be powered from USB. Even with USB connected, you must connect a 3.3V power supply to the 3.3V and GND holes.
