Monk Makes Protoboard Kit
MonkMakes Protoboard is designed to make the creation of one-off projects and prototypes as simple to make as possible by:
1. Using the same layout as a 400 point ‘half’ solderless breadboard.
2. Adding component footprints on the side of the board for connectors and a relay that doesn’t fit straight onto the breadboard. These are unpopulated so just add the parts you need for a particular project.
3 Adding component footprints on the board for a linear voltage regulator to add a power supply.
4. Add longer breadboard rows at the bottom of the board for modules that use 2×4 or 2×5 pins such as the ESP01 or NRF24 modules.
5. Solder jumpers to allow supply rails to be connected to a power supply
As well as being a good place to solder up the final design, it can be useful to stick a solderless breadboard onto one protoboard with a full set of components to be used for the solderless breadboard phase of the project. That way you can prototype without the need for any soldering, using jumper wires to connect to the screw terminals, audio jack etc.
