Free prototype PCB Sunday


We go through a lot of prototype PCBs, and end up with lots of extras that we’ll never use. This week we’re going to start a regular, weekly PCB giveaway. Every Sunday we’re going to give away a few professionally-made PCBs from one of our past or future projects, or a related prototype.

This week we’ll send a Bus Pirate v2a PCB to two readers, PCB by Seeed Studio. The Bus Pirate v2a was really handy for developing the Bus Pirate v2 series, but the Bus Pirate v2go is really the final revision of the v2 design. The nicest feature of v2a is the power switch, which allows developers to reset the Bus Pirate without messing with the USB cable. If you don’t get a free one, Seeed Studio still has some v2a PCBs for sale.

Request your PCB in the comments, be sure to use a real e-mail address so we can contact you for shipping info. Some rules after the break.

Some rules we might adhere to:

  • Limit one PCB per address per month
  • We reserve the right to ignore any request
  • We’re not responsible for the PCB actually arriving in the mail, no postal insurance or replacement option is available
  • Like everything else on this site, this PCB is offered without warranty

    If I could get one PCB for free, I would prefer the one here.
