PCB a Week 19: SD Card Breakout for breadboards

Posted on Thursday, August 1st, 2013 in PCBs, project logs by DP


Mats continues his challenge of designing one PCB every week.  In week 19  he came up with breakout board for micro SD cards:

This weeks PAW is just a breakout board for micro SD cards. There’s a number of boards like this on the market already, but they are kinda expensive and I like doing my own stuff, so here it is… :-)
The board have a LDO that supplies the SD card with 3.3 volts and there are proper level shifters on the board so it can connect to 5 volt devices. I’ve added a LED that will light up whenever a card is inserted and it will also double as a power indicator.
