EYE ON NPI – Twin Industries Combination Protoboards #EYEonNPI #digikey @DigiKey @twin_ind

Log

This week’s EYE ON NPI is a one-two-triple punch of awesome: its a combination prototyping breadboard kit from Twin Industries (https://www.digikey.com/en/product-highlight/t/twin-industries/combination-protoboards). Offering the best of three worlds in one: it has a gridded prototyping development area, a ‘perma-proto’ style 5-row DIP area, and a separate chunk of solderless breadboarding material for quick connections.

There are three versions of these combo-boards, each one is made of green-masked double-sided FR4 with gold/ENIG coating to reduce oxidation. The solderless breadboard chunk is bolted in place, but please note it does need to be soldered if you plan to use it, the bolt is not going to make electrical connectivity between boards.
