SnipCard PROTO – Prototyping board
This PROTO SnipCard (or prototyping board) has been specially designed for people who likes to make experiments and prototypes with wire-wrap (or wire-to-board) method. The 2,54 mm pitch of the holes meets the market’s standards for the most part of discrete components. If you prefer a simple, comfortable breadbord, you can solder female pin-headers wherever you need, in order to work with breadboard cables as if you were playing with any Arduino board or shield.
The PROTO SnipCard comes with a whole set of 0,8 mm holes, 2,54 mm pitch. On the front side there are eight 1,5 mm holes, 5,08 mm pitch, for external connector or wire terminals. On the SnipCard connector side there are two SOIC-16 pads, on which you can solder every SOIC component. On the components’ side there are two TSSOP-16 pads for that kind of packages.
The PROTO SnipCards mounts onboard a set of components to meet ESD safety specifications, as well as a set of resistors and capacitors to decouple / pull-up the signals and the power supplies.
The PROTO SnipCard is suitable for controlling devices in low voltage with currents up to 1A.
Even if the SnipCard has been designed to be the smallest possible, its size does not allow the installation of the DIN rail modular box, nor the SnipCard is intended to be used in that way. Its purpose is typically for use in laboratory or on your hobby bench, where DIN rail enclosure is not a main element.
