Each of the pins is a discrete channel/line and I would like to plug this into a breadboard - does anyone know what type of connector would let me split these out please? I know I could make a breakout board but a cable would be nice.

    \$\begingroup\$ Are you looking for a header socket or a bus wire with female header connector that you can plug into a breadboard? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Hard to tell from the picture without a scale reference. It could me 0.1 inch, [2.54 mm], or 0.05 inch [1.27mm], or 2.00 mm. Can you measure the distance between the pins? If not, can you provide some scale reference (for example, the width of the PCB)? \$\endgroup\$ Commented Nov 24, 2013 at 17:59

Looks like a 2.54mm pin header. It is very common header, from many manufacturers.
