Project Plate for Quickly Moving Projects Around @wayneandlayne

This project plate from Wayne and Lane not only lets you stage components, but with it you can quickly pick up and move the entire prototype without having to sweep up loose components. It’s designed for an Arduino Uno or Mega, but the idea could easily be extended to whatever microcontroller board or SBC you are using.

When I build electronics prototypes, it’s sometimes difficult to keep all the parts together without falling apart, especially if you need to move everything from one location to another. Between the breadboards, Arduino boards, programmers, FTDI cables, spare wires, and spare parts, I wanted to create a way to keep them all connected together without falling apart or losing anything.

  1. So far I’ve taken a pi dish and drilled holes for many other boards…uno, mega, feather(with doubler). This is a great idea. I’ll have to look at mounting the modified pi dish along with one of my large breadboards on something like this. Having kids somewhat makes moving mandatory and I usually have to dismantle several things to take it all off my desk and put it out in the garage before I leave the house. Probably include easily getting power to connect/disconnect to the whole setup and then it would be extremely easy to transport.
