Proto is a prototyping board for faster build of circuits which use DIL/DIP ICs but also for general prototyping.
It was made during a period where I did A LOT of modular synth modules. And I wanted to make the process of making these modules faster. One of the tedious bits of any prototyping board experience is connecting all the voltage and ground connections. This board has a bus down the middle with quick solder pads to get one of the three buses to that row of pins. In a modular unit which usually uses +V, Gnd and -V this is a quick way to connect power to all ICs but also connecting ground and power to any pins on ICs and other components anywhere in the board. Each "side" of the middle bus consists of two 3 padded regions that is easily soldered together to a 6 padded region if more that three pads are needed at a junction.
It might take some getting used to, but once you start using it you dont want to go back... The central bus is such a timesaver when it comes to routing voltage and ground.
550 Throughhole solder pads in total divided on 33 rows with 16 throughhole pads on each row divided according to this: 2-3-3-B-3-3-2 where the B stands for the middle bus.
Version 0.5 fixes and issue with the row numbering, and moving some soldering pads closer to each other.
