This is a project board for use with an ATtiny85 (or '13, '25 or '45) . This provides an outline for the ATtiny85 in either SOIC-8 or DIP-8. Each outline has its own 1206 bypass cap. It also provides holes for an ISP header, and pads for SOT-223 regulator and associated caps on the power supply (1206 or 1210), and a barrel jack. The rest of the board is dedicated to prototyping area, providing pads for an a variety of surface mount parts in addition to some traditional DIP prototyping space.
I have always found solderless breadboard to be the most effective tool for prototyping and one-off projects - however, they all suffered from two problems. First, most of the best parts now are in surface mount packages, difficult to use with through-hole proto-board. By effectively putting SMD breakout boards onto the project board, these parts can be used as easily as through-hole parts. Secondly, the quality of the available protoboard was just plain lousy. These boards are manufactured to the standards of real PCBs, with copper on both sides and plated through holes.
In the above picture, you can see an example of what a finished project using this project board might look like. Note that this is a prototype board - the ones shipping now are as shown in the main picture.
That board is connected to a 433mhz RF receiver (just off the side of the frame), LDR light sensor and a touch switch (the three-pin connector). One of the MOSFET channels is used to drive a pair of 10v 3W LED panels off the 12V input (using that large power resistor as ballast), controlled by the touch switch - this is used for under-shelf lighting. Meanwhile, an AOZ1282 buck converter generates 4.5v to power a red power LED (rated 5W, but run well below that); when a signal indicating that I've closed the door to my room is received over RF, and the room is dark, it turns on the red light so I can see my way back to bed.
A customer doing this on the old version tipped me off about this. He was cutting the power trace, and installing an ATtiny 412 (rotated 180 degrees so ground was the same pin as ground for t85, then connecting power accordingly. I made sure this would still work in the improved SMT-friendly design and then some: Power can be disconnected from the not-power-on-412 pin by cutting just the small trace to the right of the throughole outline, on the top. and instead of the usual decoupling cap on the top, flip it over and you can solder one between Don't install the usual decoupling capacitor. To get power to the the pin marked 0 (which is the t412's power pin, solder a wire between the exposed Vcc patch on the underside and pin0 of the TH footprint, and connect the 0.1uF decoupling cap between the Vcc on underside and the mysterious exposed Gnd patch. And right there the top, a similar Vcc pad. can be connected to t412's Vdd pin to power it.

International orders have been suffering long delays due to COVID-19 - please check your country at https://about.usps.com/newsroom/service-alerts/international/ and make sure that I can ship to you, and that you are okay with any delays. There may be additional information available from your national postal service. Some customers have reported packages being delayed in transit by over a month. We cannot offer any sort of guarantees regarding international shipments at this time; we apologize for the inconvenience, and are looking into shipping internationally through UPS.
Please be sure that the address given to Tindie is accurate, and includes your street name and number - company name is only required if shipping to a commercial address. International orders require a valid phone number.
Domestic packages that go more than 1 week without a tracking update will be presumed lost in the mail and refunded or reshipped as buyer prefers. Any international packages can be delayed in customs without warning for 2 weeks or more. After 1 month without a tracking event (2 months to South and Central America - insane delays in those nations are commonplace), we will reship or refund a missing order (as you prefer). COVID-19 update: Some countries have stopped processing incoming international mail entirely -we will cancel orders to countries which we know are not processing international mail at all. This may also cause longer than usual shipping times - we are not responsible for such delays.
We do not open inquiries through the postal service - experience has shown this to be futile.
We ship all orders via USPS. UPS will be added as an option in the near future, I hope. We do all shipping through Stamps.com, and they offer me UPS, but all addresses are rejected as invalid, and I have emailed support numerous times and have had zero response. So at present, we cannot entertain requests to ship through other carriers.
