Wright Hobbies has started selling the perfect prototyping board for breadboard lovers. The Protoboard 400’s pad arrangement and connections match those on a 400-point solderless breadboard. The pads in each row are connected together on either side of a 0.3 inch gap. A pair of power rails on each side match those on a normal solderless breadboard as well. The 0.3 inch gap is not wasted or empty space like on the typical solderless breadboard. They are connected along the board to create another set of power rails.
Wright Hobbies sent 5 sets to uCHobby as part of the sponsored giveaway program, one prototyping board and one matching solderless breadboard in each set. I plan to keep one set but the other four will be given away with a comment contest.
Details on the contest and a close up of the new prototyping board after the jump.
With this board we can finally move some projects off our breadboards. Making them more durable and permanent. Build up a test circuit, get the layout and even test it on a solderless breadboard. Then transfer it one part at a time to this prototyping board.
We have four sets to give away, two winners will be selected at random from the comments and two will go to the best comments as determined by us. Winners will be announced in about a month, early June.
How would you use this prototyping board? Got a neat project idea or maybe an existing breadboard you can finally tear down to move it onto one of these board?
