Touch/Proximity sensors are back in stock!
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.
|Shipping Rate||First item||Additional items|
United States Postal Service: International First Class Package
Shipment via USPS First Class International Package rate. Shipping is in large envelope or small box as dictated by contents of order. Unlike international economy shipping, this does not use a shipping partner, and should be slightly faster as a result. Shipping times vary widely, but generally depend on the destination region Europe, UK, Australia, Canada: 6-14 days Asia: 10-25 days South and central america: 2-8 weeks Africa: 2-8 weeks As always, customs may arbitrarily delay packages for days or weeks at a time for inspection.
United States Postal Service: First Class Tracked (recommended, cheaper than economy for 5+ items)
United States Postal Service: International Economy
International shipping via Stamps.com Global Advantage International Flat shipping. This goes through a shipping partner to allow for lower cost international shipment now that USPS no longer accepts merchandise with their First Class International Mail Large Envelope rate. We will add more time on expected delivery speed as we get more experience with this new shipping service. No shipping to India - packages shipped there via this method don't seem to arrive.
United States Postal Service: International Priority Express (tracked, flat rate)
International Priority Mail Express shipping - the fastest shipping option for international shipments to all non-US locations, at an (unfortunately) exorbitant price. This is a flat rate for any size order - so be sure to stock up on all those small items you've been eyeing!
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!
United States Postal Service: International Priority Mail (tracked, flat rate)
International shipping via International Priority Mail in a small box. This is marginally faster than First Class (though unfortunately USPS doesn't provide per-country delivery time estimates), and is a flat rate for any size order.
United States Postal Service: Economy (untracked, bare boards only)
The cheapest shipping option available, for bare boards within the United States only.
