Sometimes you need a big piece of prototyping board, like my other products.
Other times, you just need a tiny little piece of it - and now you can do that without having to try to cut up big pieces of protoboard (which will ruin the blade on most things you might use to cut it alarmingly quickly). That's why I made these! Packs containing multiple boards will arrive in a small panel as shown and can be separated easily (no tools are needed).
Over 15 square inches of prototyping board, over two dozen pieces (a $10 value), for only $6, and you save a bundle on shipping too. Just about any little piece of prototyping board you could need, and then some! This package is focused on through-hole prototyping board - see below for the more SMD-centric offerings.
Over 7 square inches of SMD-friendly prototyping board, over a dozen pieces for $4. This package contains breakout boards for many of the most common SMD packages.
An interesting take on small pieces of through-hole prototyping - perfect for prototyping with an assortment of passives or working with things in DIP-16, DIP-14, and DIP-8 packages. The long rails on the edges can be used for power and ground.
Like the 1" x 1.5" mini prototyping board above - only longer. This one is ideal for working with larger DIP packages, up to and including DIP-28, used on the popular ATMega 328p - in fact, this board is the perfect size for building a standalone Arduino!
By popular demand, a package of just the ~1" square 3-4-3 mini protoboard. Great for small projects - you can fit a microcontroller in DIP-8, or even DIP-14 and it's supporting components.
A selection of prototyping boards for some of the most common SMD packages for voltage regulators and similar. An effort has been made to keep traces short, since many of the interesting parts are switching regulators that require short traces between the chip and supporting components.
The TO-252-5 and TO-263-5 packages are typically used for light-medium duty power ICs, like voltage regulators, buck/boost controllers ( like the LM2596 ), and constant current LED drivers. These components typically perform a simple well-defined task, and require a few external components - and often require that trace lengths be kept short. These boards are great for prototyping with parts like that, as they have some prototyping space right on the board so layout sensitive components can be kept close to the chip.
Suggested uses: - Converters between cables or connectors with different pinouts - you can also add some small components if needed - even basic level shifters! - LED indicator board for test and debugging - Use with SOT-23 MOSFETs - you can put the gate pulldown (or pullup) on the opposite side of the board on the resistor outlines.
Convert between 0.1", 2.0mm and 0.05" pin header with these 8-pin converter boards. 8 to a package. Solder mask color may vary. Currently shipping yellow.
TO-263-5 package broken out to groups of 2 pins, with a row of 8 groups of 2 pins on either side for general prototyping. The TO-263-5 package is typically used for power IC's, like voltage regulators and buck/boost controllers (such as the ever popular LM2596. These components typically perform a simple well-defined task, and require a few external components - these boards are just the right size for prototyping with these sort of parts.

We recognize our top users by making them a Tindarian. Tindarians have access to secret & unreleased features.
We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
I build projects with Arduino (ATtinies almost exclusively, never anything bigger than a '328p) and Espruino (often both working together), and I make a lot of circuit boards for these projects. Particularly after using my ATtiny-prototyping board for my own projects, I realized that these would be useful to other people, and decided to start selling them here on Tindie.
Strip Board, Protoboard, prototyping board, solderable breadboard - whatever you want to call it - it has been a mainstay in electronics prototyping for decades, and hasn't changed much in the interim (not even in production quality, as they're still often single-sided and/or manufactured from low-grade phenolic resin instead of FR4). My prototyping board creations bring these into the modern era, offering a combination of 0.1" through-hole prototyping areas (consisting of groups of 2, 3 or 4 pins connected together, like solderable breadboard) and pads for common surface mount packages connected to through-holes for easy soldering. To handle projects of all sizes, I offer prototyping board as large as 4" x 4", down to less than an inch square in my Mini Protoboard line. Unlike most commercial prototyping board, these boards are made to the same quality standards as real PCBs. Through-holes are plated, and the boards are double sided. These are offered in both generic versions, and ones tailored to specific microcontrollers, like the Tiny84/85, or microcontroller boards, like the Espruino Pico, Arduino Pro Mini, and the wildly popular ESP8266.
ATtiny breakout boards:
I love the ATtiny lineup, particularly some of the less popular ones, like the incredibly full-featured ATtiny841, ATtiny1634, and ATtiny828. Breakout boards for these that had the features I wanted were not readily available - so I made my own. I've since expanded my product line to include breakout boards for the ATtiny861, ATtiny167, and ATtiny88 - and all of these are available both as bare boards and assembled. In addition to designing the hardware I also maintain [ATtinyCore Universal](https://github.com/SpenceKonde/ATTinyCore), which enables Arduino support for all these ATtiny's and more.
I also sell a number of other boards to fill what I felt were gaps in the market, including a breakout board for the popular LoRa/LoRaWAN modules from Microchip (the RN2483 and 2903), which has become one of my top selling items. I also sell MOSFET drivers and breakout boards for logic level MOSFETs operating at logic levels of 2.5v and lower - while a great number of MOSFETs are available that operate with very low gate voltages, these are almost invariably SMD parts which are difficult to use without a properly designed breakout board.
