BB-Prince KIT

Mats has amazed us with his board a week projects, and now one of them could be yours!  Today Mats is giving away three “BB Prince” kits.  It’s a small utility board for your breadboard that have some of the most common things you need when building a microcontroller-based project on the breadboard.

He’ll give these away to 3 random commenters, just leave a comment on this post.

For more information visit the project’s Tindie site.

  23. Mick M says:

    Hi Mats;
    very nice.
    Maybe make one of the LED’s active low?
    That way it is more universal.

    Very cool giveaway – lot of fun there!

  53. Stephen says:

    Count me in!

  54. I’ve got a bunch of new Kickstarter microcontrollers coming in the next few months. This would come in handy for testing them. :)

  55. Rutger says:


  56. Kevin says:

    Looks like a very handy little device.

  57. ed says:

    OK, here’s a random comment. An extremely random comment.

  58. Giuss says:

    Nice, I’d like one :)

  59. Jürgen says:


  60. Marcello says:

    I hope is not too late……

  61. Xykon says:

    I ordered some USB breakout boards. I like those for the two rows of pins which allow me to connect my logic analyzer to sniff the USB traffic.

    I can’t wait for the SMD adapters to be back in stock and the release of additional kits!

  62. Xykon says:

    Sorry for the double post but please ignore me for the giveaway. I hardly use breadboards for micro controller projects these days but usually get ready made dev kits. I don’t want to take away from someone who’d really find this thing useful.

    I think offering this as an SMD kit might be a nice idea. It’s easy enough to put together and could be a great learning experience. A newb version that comes with 2x pcb, flux and 3x all components might also be something to think about ;)

    • Mats Engstrom (@matseng) says:

      @Xykon, good idea with a SMD version of the BB Prince, I have to call that BB Prince Jr. then….

      If the my prototypes, that are at the fab right now, turns out ok I’ll actually release two small learn-to-solder-smd -kits soon. (Both with extremely custom shaped pcbs. You’ll see soon :-)

  63. Steve Bennett says:

    pick me!!!

  64. mati says:

    hope to get one

  69. Alfredo Alcazar says:

    It’s great!!!

  70. Stéphan says:

    Nice !

  71. Just received mine today, about to assemble it.
    Thank you very much!
