Giveaway: NuFithole-kit and mini/micro USB breakouts


Mats has amazed us with his board a week projects, and now one of them could be yours!  Today Mats is giving away four kits of  Nu-Fithole  and  four USB breakouts, you can choose between a Mini- or Micro USB breakout.

He’ll give these away to 8 random commenters, just leave a comment on this post with your preference.

The first is for four “kits” of my new batch of Nu-Fithole boards. I ran out of the old batch so I ordered some more. I also made a XL version of it with holes ranging from 2.4 to 3.5 mm. So each of the four kits are with one Regular and one XL board.

Then I also made a big batch of the mini/micro USB breakouts.  I’ll give away four of these as well. The USB mini connectors are already soldered, but you’ll have to solder the pinheader (included) yourself. The boards for this giveaway only have one row of headers, not two as on the old board.

  1. microusb breakout please…still don’t know why they designed those damned connectors so that the pins are buried underneath to make it nearly impossible to hand solder :-P

  2. USB would be awesome, no matter if mini or micro. Would you ship those giveaways overseas anyway?
    Greetings from germany!

  3. A mini would be great! Currently experimenting for the first time with USB and PIC’s.

  4. Although I appreciate the advantages of SMD, I’m always pleased to see experimenter devices with plug-in features.

  5. Hi Mats! The Micro- breakout would be great for my modded, wirelessly controlled Telescope videocam! (Still have to connect it to a host to download the videos!) Thanks!

  6. These would be great. The number of times I have tried to use a micro usb socket without a breakout board and then dismissed it (hours later) as a bad joke

  7. I absolutely need to change my timezone :-(. Anyway I would love a MicroUSB breakout, too.
