LoRa module in DIL form

Mare writes: Murata produces LoRa module CMWX1ZZABZ-xxx based on SX1276 transceiver and STM32L072CZ microcontroller. The soldering of the LGA module is not very hobby-friendly. I constructed small breakout PCB for this module with additional buck/boost switcher and place for SMA connector. The transceiver features the LoRa®long-range modem, providing ultra-long-range spread spectrum communication and high interference […]

More Energy monitoring – ATM90E26 Breakout

A Breakout board for the ATMEL E9026 Energy monitor from Whatnicklife: What is it? ATM90E26 breakout for AC energy monitoring. It allows development of code and applications conveniently. Why did you make it? I wanted to test various energy monitor ASIC’s. I have already made an ADE7763 Breakout, I wanted to try the ATM90E26 for comparison and […]

Fobble, a general purpose wireless breakout board

Ken Boak  has been working on a general purpose wireless breakout board – Fobble: As can be seen from the above picture it contains a number of key features: A resident RFduino  Bluetooth Low Energy Module with ARM Cortex M0 processor 2 layer pcb 50 x 50 mm format- with extended Arduino headers pin-out An X-Bee footprint […]

Building a breakout board for a TI TMP708

Carl from Hackshed.co.uk writes: Steve recently ordered several Texas Instruments TMP708 temperature switches. What he failed to realise however, is that the chips come in an SOT package which is tiny. After laughing at him for quite a while, I offered to build him a breakout board for the chips. Here are the steps I took […]

VGA framegrabbing with TVP7002

desaster blogged about his VGA framegrabber project: The project got a nice boost when I found TVP7002 on TI’s site. It’s a video digitizing chip, featuring 3x ADC (one for each color channel) and a PLL system for generating the pixel clock from the HSYNC input. Compared to alternatives, this seemed to be quite nicely priced, and […]

Simple 0.96″ 128×64 OLED breakout board

noahp shared his breakout for 0.96″ 128×64 OLED display in the project log forum: Thought I’d share this design here in case it can be of use to anyone. Includes python script that initializes and loads data to the ssd1306 (please excuse the logo pandering, needed a simple example and that was right in front of […]

POTONG6 – Potentiometer & Slide switch breakout

Mats shared his Potentiometer & Slide switch breakout -POTONG6 in the project log forum: This is just a small utility board that I added to a previous batch of PCBs. Nothing fancy at all. :-) Sometimes I need a pot or two when I test a design on a solderless breadboard and it’s always a PITA […]

Tiny breakout board for 24LC512 EEPROM and MCP9802 temp sensor

Raj I recently designed this tiny breakout board for Microchip’s 24LC512 EEPROM and MCP9802 temperature sensor devices, both of which support I2C protocol. This single board can be used for both sensing the ambient temperature and storing it. You can view the circuit diagram and get more details on Raj’s Tindie project at EmbeddedLab. Via […]

STM32 ARM breakout board with Ethernet PHY

Mikro Elektornika is selling STM32 ARM breakout boards with Ethernet PHY for a reasonable price of $24. While they are intended as replaceable MCU cards for their EasyMX PRO v7 development board, you can also buy them standalone and develop your project around them. They come with either STM32F107, STM32F207, or STM32F407 processors, or as unpopulated […]

USBug: LPC1343 breakout board

USBug is a LPC1343 breakout board with USB capability. The bootloader appears as a USB flash drive, just drag a new firmware into the drive to update. Basically, my board is a 40-pin LPC1343 breakout board with 12 MHz crystal, USB Connect detection and disconnect, MicroBuilder’s single-button ISP, ISP Header and the standard LPCXpresso user […]

PIC32F and PIC24F SOIC-28breakout board v1a

Our latest 3D model is the PIC32F and PIC24F SOIC-28 breakout board . This project lets you get familiar with the PIC32 and PIC24 microcontrollers in a breadboard friendly “blade” style breakout board that leaves plenty of room for other parts. Check out our tutorial on how to build 3D models from Cadsoft Eagle board […]

Breakout board for the Stellaris ARM Cortex 3 microcontrollers from Texas Instruments

Emeryth designed a breakout board for the Stellaris ARM Cortex 3 microcontrollers from Texas Instruments. It supports either LM3S3748 (USB device/host) or LM3S6938 (Ethernet). The LM3S6938 requires and additional Ethernet daughter board. He based his design of Texas Instruments evaluation boards. You can download the source files from his site. Via the forum.
