SparkFun Support and Front Desk will be closed on Thursday 11/14 from 1-2:30pm for a company event. Please plan to pick up your orders before or after this timeframe.
An empty canvas for electrical enthusiasts! Designed to fit the SFE project enclosures this project board gives you of building space for through-hole components with 2.54mm (100mil) spaced holes. This is not your normal perf board! This board is much higher quality with plated-through-holes and annular rings that will not lift off the PCB under normal soldering conditions.
The marsupial naming convention is what happens when you let Engineers into a Marketing meeting. They looked so happy, we just couldn't tell them no. Wombat is the board with nothing but PTH prototyping pads.

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

Soldering onto this board has been easier to do than I thought (using a crappy Radioshack soldering iron). A bonus is the vias are not connected to each other, so you can safely solder components near each other without needing to cut traces.
With the mounting holes, it works great in the project cases.
Needed a red board for my Dac project. Boards are primarily red. Breadboarding a regulated high quality power supply. The holes are nicely plated and reasonably easy to punch out for components with larger leads like my 4 pole power supply caps. It looks good for a proto board. May need some smaller ones similar to this. Hopefully some are available in this style.
Actually, I split them in half making two smaller 2x4" boards that I use with solid state relays (from Spark Fun) to create my electronic Christmas light displays. They are high quality and easy to assemble and solder my circuits to.
Before I got into PCB design this was a mandatory supply. Although I highly encourage using a PCB design software and making your own boards. Even where I am now these work well in a pinch.
