Star Proto Solderable Pref Board

Star Proto Solder Board 132 Tie Points (2 pcs) 

⭐At Bits4Bots, LLC we are designing an all new and anything but square, line of proto boards for electronic enthusiast! By offering a new look to general solderable pref boards we hope to inspire the next generation of STEM careers for grades K-12. 

Background: Soldering is the process of using a filler material (solder) to join pieces of metal together. With a brief introduction to electronic circuits a simple design using a LED, resistor, and battery can be joint together. A lesson on how to solder should also be consider. 

Our proto boards provide a canvas for students and hobbyist who are learning to solder. This product can be used with solder, solder flux and a soldering iron. Personal protective equipment should always be used.

Star Shaped Solderable Perf Board 132 tie points. Double-sided PCB board prototype for electronic circuits. Applicable to various DIP and electronic components.

What is it?

Star shaped perf solder board. 5 mounting holes. 132 tie points for a wide range of DIP and electronic components.

Why did you make it?

Provide a fun shaped solder board to the electronics world (both fun loving electronic enthusiast and kids) and to interest the next generation of STEM careers.

What color is it?


Fun Facts: We use KiCad for our board designs. Autodesk Inventor software is used for 3D models. Boards are designed by a three person team. The Project Lead is an Electrical Engineer. The Tech Leads are visionaries and fun loving content creators.

Free enclosures are in progress to protect the fun shaped proto circuit. Visit us on Thingiverse.

This summer 2019. We can hardly wait! Just think of all the possibilities this small, lightweight microcontroller can do. 

New Arduino Nano 33 IoT
1. Secure WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity with a 6-axis IMU.
2. Pre-certified module with external processor ensures maintaining RF compliance when writing application code versus ESP32 modules where modifying code impacts certification.
3. On-board DC-DC power supply enables the board to be powered up to 21V maintaining high efficiency and offering a lot of current to external devices without overheating. This is a big improvement over other products on the market that have LDO and heat up quite a bit when powered at high voltages.

The Nano 33 IoT is essentially a MKR WiFi 1010, but sacrifices a battery charger and shield compatibility in favor of a miniaturized footprint and lower cost. The Nano 33 IoT is built around the ESP32, which is primarily aimed at WiFi but supports Bluetooth as well, although with higher power consumption than the Nano 33 BLE.

Matlab on iPhone & iPad Devices

Written by Larsha Johnson

Do you want to use your iPhone or iPad to collect data from built in sensors such as acceleration, angular velocity, orientation, magnetic field, and GPS?

In this blog I will explain how to use MATLAB to collect data and log it.

First you will need access to MATLAB. Next, download the Mobile MATLAB app via Apple Store. From your lab top you will need to download the add-on 'MATLAB Support Package for Apple iOS Sensors'. 

Once all downloads have been made, open the mobile app and press the icon at the bottom right labeled 'More'. There you will see the Sensors option. Press it. This opens the menu for five (5) different built-in sensors. To begin, turn on one or more sensors. After the selection has been made, you can stream to MATLAB or log the data. 

Next, press the start button to collect data from your iOS device. *Before getting started you can change the frequency. If you chose to log the data, access the new file by pressing the icon to the right of the start button. See screenshots below.

Below is the link to the shared folder for reference. Use it as you please and please follow this blog.
