Description: This is the Mini SparkFun Solder-able Breadboard. A bare PCB that is the exact size as our mini modular breadboards with the same connections to pins. 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.

Customer Comments

  • What is the hole pitch?

  • I used this to make a 555 timer circuit that blinks an led that wI’ll go inside a Jack O' Lantern

  • Can this be cut with an X-Acto knife (Or SFE’s equivalent)?

  • There’s something not quite right with the STL model, nether solidworks or sketchup recognized it as a solid body. It’s an easy fix, just thought you guys would like to know. Side note: if you’re using sketchup to create models, I’d recommend the Clean up 3 and Solid Inspector 2 extension tools to error check them before they are posted. These tools made it pretty easy to find and repair the file.

  • Anyone know of an enclosure that would fit this nicely?

  • What’s the maximum current you recommend putting through this breadboard?

  • It would be awesome to get one of these with a hole pattern to match the Actobotics stuff.

  • Nice board. Will be very useful for small projects. One question though: “[…] with the same connections to pins and power rails.” What power rails?

    EDIT: Description has been changed. My comment isn’t valid anymore.

    • What this /should/ be offering is basically a flattened version of the full breadboard (found at ), or a protoboard with all of the connections that a breadboard would have pre-“cut” for you. If you look closely at the larger version of the images you can see on the back the connections.

  • These are really useful, but I wish they were single sided; I can’t see that having pads on the top surface offers any advantage, and the plated-through holes make it almost impossible to remove components once you’ve soldered them in.

  • Are the rows connected like on the regular breadboards?

  • Is there a version of this without any connections? Just a board with through-holes that I can attach components to?

  • Can these boards be easily cut? Obviously cutting parallel to the traces. So I could use them as smaller boards for projects. Is there really an easy way to cut them without just mangling them?

    • Using a straight-edge and sharp utility knife, just score through a column of holes, on both sides, and snap along the edge of a table. Repeated scoring makes the snapping easier and edge cleaner. You can also sand the edges smooth, if you like, but wear respiratory protection!

  • A mini Breadboard sized protoboard with traced rows. I can already see some small projects being soldered on a few of these. like a self designed remote, or a small sensor board. Possibilities are endless. i know the Wired Protoboard can do similiar, but for some projects one may prefer not to have to spend time carefully cutting traces.

Perfect for small projects

I love these solderable breadboards! They’re perfect for small projects.

The mini board fits perfectly on top of the Mini modular breadboard. Place this on top of the breadboard and stick the components in. Once your circuit is working, carefully lift the board off and solder everything into place.

It's a board that has holes.

So this does what it’s supposed to. I put things on it and they worked. So… it’s good.

Great little board

Does everything you’d like. But does not have power rails. For the money, I wish sparkfun carried - they were backordered on Digikey, but finally got in.

Handy little board

I’m using one of these boards to build an infrared remote shutter controller for my camera (using an AVR 328P processor).

This board is well made (none of that “weak copper” that seems to peel off the minute it’s soldered).

I could probably buy a retail remote for less money and zero work, but what fun would that be? :)

Let’s see if this works… here are a few pics of the board and the IR remote in the process of being built:

(oh well you’ll have to copy and paste the URL….)

(edit to add): Made another IR remote board using an ATTiny25 this time. Again, the little protoboard is perfect! Just enough room for the CPU and crystal, plus the 2N4401 transistor to drive the IR LED and the associated resistors and bypass caps. Now I’m out of boards and have to order more! :)

It works

It probably works fine for what it’s designed for. We made the circuit smaller by scratching out the connections between some of the holes. Worked fine, even better if we didn’t have to scratch so deep…


Works as expected. I miss the super tiny square boards sparkfun used to carry, but this is probably more useful in more situations.

really neat product

this is a really premium feeling product. i highly reccomend it.

Don't apply too much heat

I love these things. You can transfer your project straight from your breadboard to this protoboard. There’s no need to rework it unless you use the positive/negative rows on the sides. That’s the only thing I would change about it.

Other than that, just be sure you don’t heat it too much when soldering. The little conductive ring pad thingys will come off if they get too hot.

Great product.

It is small and easy to work with. It looks good too!
