Make your next project as you imagine it with prototyping perfboards that can easily be cut with scissors like these Bakelite Universal Perfboard Plates!
We wanted a perfboard that was both customizable and durable and bakelite was the answer. Like most perfboards these plates come on thin (1.2mm) sheets with holes drilled in a grid, each spaced 0.1″ apart. There are some big copper pads (for mechanical connections? We’re not exactly sure) on both ends of the board and each individual hole is ringed with copper on the bottom side.
A perfboard as opposed to our classic perma-protos or breadboards has no default connectivity so you have total freedom with how you’d like to lay-out your circuits. Cut and solder away!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
