It makes it far easier to experiment with/work with the extremely powerful (for a uC) Atmel XMega chips. It basically makes the chip usable on protoboards and stuff.

Probably the first thing you will want to do is adjust the the pixel
intensity by comparing every pixel level on the fly and either adjusting
the scan speed or off-setting the the entire frame based on the
summation of the previous frame making the best view image for
ambient light changes.

Adafruit now carries these breakout boards with ZIF sockets. So you don't have to go through the trouble of trying to solder the chips in place.
