Electron Prototyping PCB

A small, simple, prototyping PCB for the Particle Electron.

  • A USB A plug can be mounted onto the PCB allowing the prototype to be plugged directly into a USB power outlet (PC, Wall brick, battery etc.).
  • The A and B inputs to the Electron have pull-up 1206 pads (PCB top layer) to 3v3 and pull-down 1206 pads (PCB bottom layer) to GND, this makes it easy to create a potential divider on the analog inputs for resistive sensors such as LDRs, thermistors, variable resistors etc.
  • 8x 1206 pads at the end of the PCB (top and bottom) for LEDs, resistors, capacitors, input protection (emc filters, resistors etc).
  • 10 way connector with 3v3 and GND connected and 8 connections to one side of the 1206 pads.
  • 4 1206 pads top and bottom for SMD capacitors, resistors etc by the main prototyping area to make room for more interesting components.
  • PCB bottom layer underneath the electron has pads for a SMD transistor or small FET with support resistors (base/gate protect and pull down).
  • 3x mounting holes for M3 machine screws or A2 self tappers.
