Thread: Plug n' play prototyping

  1. #1

    Cool Plug n' play prototyping

    Bread board loose contacts frustrate. Vero (dot) board soldering is frustrate! Why not have pre-soldered breakout modules for everything. The modules will come with pre-crimped cables for easy interfacing to each other. Rapid prototyping can be done using this approach.

    Moreover:

    reduces soldering effort as it is already done on the breakout

    reduces eye strain of designing/modifying prototype PCBs

    Any opinions guys?

    Many people have already done something similar

    A lot of kits like mindstorm ,vex etc follow this approach

    There is a difference though:

    1 - Modules will come with cables grouped and crimped as per headers for a given board, not individual wires to be bought seperately
    2 - Modules will be available even for a basic IC like 555, 4060, 7805 etc.
    3 - Cost of each module will be very low below Rs.500.00: Eg. Atmel AT89S5x ISP programmer breakout - Rs.250.00 with software for Linux/Window$, AT89S5x Generic Board (with IC) - Rs.200.00
    4 - Modules will be made as per custom requests to enhance and enlarge the kit

    ASKI, do you plan to open an online robotics workshop
