Description: The SparkFun Big Red Box Proto Board is a large, custom made PCB that has been specifically designed to be used with and installed into our Big Red Box. This board features a large prototyping area with exactly 1,488 solder points (yes, we counted). With this proto board you will be able to create or incorporate unique projects into a reliably weatherproof enclosure.

Each SparkFun Big Red Box Proto Board is equipped with ten mounting holes to secure it inside the enclosure. The proto board can even be broken in half at the V-score that runs down the middle to use only half or, with addition of some standoffs, can be stacked on top of one another. Either option will require some ¼" 4-40 screws.

  • Eagle 7.4 (OS X) does not like the linked brd file. It gives this error:

    line 5, column 41: This is not an EAGLE file.

    • I just tried it out here on 7.4 and it seems to be working fine. I’d try opening up a few other Eagle files and see if those are throwing errors as well - there’s nothing in the .xml on line 5 that would throw an error as far as I can see, but there could possibly be some weird configuration issue.

  • now you need Perma-proto DIP and SOIC versions! ;P

  • I suspect it was actually Buzzard, er, Eagle that did the counting of the holes.

    • Sad part is I didn’t think about doing that until you just mentioned it. Well, it was only a few minutes wasted. :)

Good simple board

It could use a ground plane. Best yet would be a portion or side lined out like a breadboard.
