A quick way to add 5v to any project and use some of those old Micro-USB CablesDesigned by vdbx.io in United States of America
This is the final lot of V1.1 USB-BD from 2019. v1.4 has arrived and we are working on photos. There's a bad one at the end and a short description below. We're also considering what a Type-C USB-BD …Read More…
The USB-BD is a small PCB and some associated parts intended to make it easier to add 5v USB power to electronics projects. Its form factor is its main feature as it is designed to fit in the power rails of a common solderless breadboard. It will even gang or bridge the two inline sets of rails on larger breadboards. Its power rail is switched by default, but can be bypassed with the solder jumper on the top. A JST 2.0 connector provides access to the data pins D+ & D-, while a solder jumper on the bottom allows for easily grounding the ID pin for OTG connections.
The USB-BD is fully open-source and certified by OSHWA, you can find the source materials in the links below.
V1.4 Updates: We've changed the push switch for a slide switch which is easier to solder and replaced the 2.0 JST header with a standard 2.54mm pin header. This has reduced the footprint of the USB-BD and now you can insert data pins in your breadboard directly. We've also automated our manufacturing to make them more reliable. The first several orders will get an extra BBD.
Soldering of through-hole components is required.
v1.4 5+1 pack - 6x USB-BD 1.4 - 6x Slide Switch with 3mm handle - 12x 1x2p Pin headers
V1.0/1.1 5 Pack: - 5x USB-BD 1.0/1.1 - 5x of 5.8mm Micro Latching Switch - 5x JST 2.0 Header - 5x JST 2.0 Lead - 10x 1x2 pin headers

I've always found myself doing electronics projects that require 5v... and specifically 5v from USB. It's always been a pain to get 5v from a USB port... the 5 pin breakouts from AliExpress and other sources are usually junk and you still have to wire back up to your power rails. The power supplies I've seen on Amazon and AliExpress are usually some large monstrosity that bridges the two parallel sides of the breadboard (why?) and require a barrel jack connector at some weird voltage.... again... why? If you're like me, you have a million Micro-USB cables laying around and the power bricks to go with them. Let's use them for making stuff. I feel like this is a product I will be using day in and day out... a new tool to make even cooler things and I hope you find it as useful as I have.
