Giveaway: NuFithole-kit and mini/micro USB breakouts

Posted on Monday, June 10th, 2013 in contest by DP


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.

For more information visit the project’s Tindie site.
