A prototyping board for both surface mount and through hole devices. If you're experimenting with SMD parts or building one-off projects, BlueBoard#01 will make your life easier in ways that solderless breadboards, perf board or custom PCBs can not.
Comes in a 5 pack so you'll always have one on hand when inspiration strikes.
See full documentation over on Hackaday.io.
BlueBoard#01 is packed with the results of weeks of research and iteration:
I was in the early stages of a wearables project and was wanting to experiment with multiple parts that are only available in SMD packages. I had a cheap prototyping PCB made up with square pads and a few SMD footprints, and it let me iterate quickly. I learned a lot. But I also found myself thinking about how to improve the prototyping process.
I made a new, and better prototyping PCB, and used a bunch of them to refine my design further. At this point I realized the prototyping PCB was interesting in itself, so started putting time into that.
BlueBoard #01 is the fourth iteration, resulting from many mistakes, much research into SMD packages, lessons learned, conversation with my PCB house, and lots of experience - the kind of experience that Randy Pausch spoke about.
