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.

LabVIEW Multisim API Toolkit - RLC Values Example

Automate your Multisim design in LabVIEW 

Written by: Larsha Johnson
Date: October 24th, 2021

If you like designing electronic circuits in Multisim and would like to automate the simulation and analyses in LabVIEW, this example will walk you through how it can be done. The link below may help with missing NI module, Toolkit, or driver warning when opening VI errors.

Multisim Toolkit with LabView

The Multisim Automation API and the LabVIEW Multisim API Toolkit (which uses the API) recognize and can be used to control the values of all circuit parameters in the design. This lets you control most component parameters from the API.

This example uses Multisim version 14.2 and LabVIEW 2021

First open Multisim file RLC values from the blue sample folder → LabView Multisim API Toolkit.

After the file is loaded into Multisim workspace, open LabVIEW, click the "File" tab and open the RLC Values vi as shown.

The simulation should run from here if all the necessary NI Modules, toolkits, and drivers are installed correctly. However, we will explore further by clicking the "Windows" tab and opening the associated block diagram. *The original design was modified by removing the blocks section "Multisim preparation" and replaced with a single "Select File Path" block form the Multisim Add-on tab. 

💬This may differ depending on software version.

If any errors should occur, in this diagram by block location is where they will be listed. From the LabVIEW front panel or from the block diagram, press the white arrow icon to run the simulation on the Multisim RLC Values circuit. 

This demonstrates how to sweep a resistor value to calculate a phase shift plot. (set to R2 by default)

In Multisim alternative analyses and simulations can be performed such as "Parameter Sweep", "Transfer Function", and "Pole Zero" to name a few.
