This is a prototyping shield for the Arduino Uno, Mega, Duemillenove and others that use the same shield layout. This uses the same sort of prototyping space that my other protoboards do, with predominantly through-hole prototyping area, with a few SMD footprints. The shield extends beyond the top and bottom edges of the Arduino board to provide more space for making connections to the Arduino pins, but does not extend over the USB and power connectors, so that they can't bump into eachother when using stackable pin header. Holes are provided in line with those on the Arduino boards, so you can rigidly connect the shield to the Arduino if necessary.
Next to each row of Arduino pins is a nice big exposed ground trace, with as many through holes as I could fit: Finally, a prototyping shield with enough places to connect to ground! Additionally, Ground, 5v, 3.3v, and one uncommitted auxiliary trace are routed around to the corners of the board, so there's always a supply connection close at hand. The fourth "auxiliary" trace, marked AUX on the board can be used to distribute power from an additional voltage regulator, if your project needs one.
While most of us prefer working with through-hole components, sometimes the parts you need just aren't available in through-hole packages. This prototyping shield provides plenty of spaces for SMD prototyping, while still providing plenty of space for normal through-hole work. The SMD outlines provided are as follows; All outlines are connected to through-holes for ease of connection. Some of them share these through-hole connections with a nearby outline, as noted below:
|Shipping Rate||First item||Additional items|
United States Postal Service: Economy (untracked, bare boards only)
The cheapest shipping option available, for bare boards within the United States only.
United States Postal Service: First Class Tracked (recommended, cheaper than economy for 5+ items)
United States Postal Service: Priority Mail - Flat rate (fastest, tracked)
Domestic shipping via USPS Priority Mail - USPS advertises 1~3 day shipping time within the continental United States. This is a flat rate for any quantity of items - this is your chance to buy piles of small cheap items like my mini prototyping boards without paying extra for shipping!
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.
