After ordering the Renesas RX62N promotional development board I came across this daughterboard in the comments on Dangerous Prototypes. It can be found here, Future Electronics, for just a penny! The limit is four so I bought two. This way I can have two projects and easily swap them out. What those projects will be? I have no idea. I am hoping some of the IC’s I need to test will have a matching footprint on this board. I could also jumper it to an Arduino and use this board as a breakout.

Remember, this is the bare PCB so you also need the connectors, which I have listed here.

I bought four of each, two of each type for each PCB. The PCB connects on the top and bottom of the board with a cutout for the display.
Here are some pictures of the assembly process using my newly built fume extractor.
