DIY PCB breakout boards

Posted on Thursday, May 12th, 2011 in demonstrations, Development by the machinegeek

Have a new component that’s not pin compatible with a breadboard? Chris from Pyroelectro has a new tutorial describing how to make your own custom PCB breakout boards. In this video he demonstrates how to build a board for an ethernet connector. Follow his plans and you’ll have a system to tackle the non-standard footprint components in your collection.

Thanks Chris! Via the contact form.
