Description: This is the Large SparkFun Solder-able Breadboard. A bare PCB that is the exact size as our full-size breadboard with the same connections to pins and power rails. This board is especially useful for preserving a prototype or experiment you just created on a solderless breadboard by soldering all the pieces in place.

The large solder-able breadboard also includes real estate for screw terminal connectors and a trace down the center gutter for ground.

Customer Comments

  • Hi, I am looking to CAD this part so i can make a 3d printed enclosure for my project. Does anyone have dimensions of the board and mounting holes, also the weight of it? Thanks for your help, sparkfun community.

    • The board is 7.7" by 2.5".

      The mounting holes are 0.1259" in diameter, intended to fit a 4-40 screw. They’re set in from the adjacent edges by 0.15" in each dimension.

      They weigh less than the minimum resolution on my overprovisioned scale.

  • Please make the center trace be a dual trace like those along the sides so that power and ground can be brought down the center which most integrated circuits will require to be connected. That way the side runs do not have to be used for that and can be used for other signals. The space exists in the center to do this, so why not use it?

  • Rev2 should include a partial row of pins offset to support a header row for an Arduino. This will be really awesome.

  • All you have to do is secure this over the breadboard, then once you’re done you cover it in copious amounts of glue before soldering!

Worked Exactly as Needed

I made the most complex soldering project that I have ever done, using this breadboard, and it worked great. The only issues came from my own lack of soldering skill, but that is improving some. It took a while to complete the task, because I was working with a new iron and new lead-free solder, so it was a learning experience.

I like that the breadboard has 2 separate power rails, with the option of joining them, which I did not do in this case, because I needed 2 different voltages on those rails.
