DIYIC Proto Board - Full Kit

Complete with terminal posts and aluminum stand
Not currently available

DIYIC: "Do-It-Yourself Integrated Circuit!" This breadboard-style solderable proto board is shaped like a giant integrated circuit. Make your own custom 8-pin integrated circuit, use it as a giant connectorized breakout board for smaller components, or however you see fit.

The matte-black circuit board is extra thick and has subtle white markings including an alphanumeric grid and pin number labels. The wiring pattern — that of classic breadboards — is easy to see by looking at the exposed traces on bottom of the board.

The kit comes complete with the "Integrated Circuit Leg" stand and 8 color coded thumbscrew terminal posts. Using the terminal posts and solder points, you can hook up to your "IC" with with bare wires, lugs, alligator clips, and/or solder joints. Connections to the 8 terminal posts are through the three-position strips on the PCB; each is labeled with the corresponding pin number.

Kit contents

  • The DIYIC Proto Board
  • 8-32 size press-fit threaded inserts (8 pieces) pre-installed in the proto board
  • Color coded terminal post thumbscrews (1 red, 1 black, 6 gray).
  • Clear-anodized aluminum "leadforms" that comprise the stand (two pieces, each with four legs)
  • Trilobular thread forming screws (6 pieces, black, 6-32 thread size), and spacers for mounting the stand.

The included assortment of 8-32 thumbscrews (1 red, 1 black, 6 gray) will work for many projects. These screws are also available à la carte on our hardware page, in red, black, gray, and yellow.
