Makers, students and electronic enthusiasts may be interested in a new arrival at the Adafruit online store in the form of the Circuit Playground Proto Gizmo. Designed to help you easily expand your circuit playground projects offering a bolt on Perma-Proto enabling you to solder circuits any more robust and reliable way.
The small circular prototyping board looks similar to a solderless breadboard but is equipped with permanently affixed M3 standoffs that act as mechanical and electrical connections. Adafruit explains a little more.
“Each pad of the Circuit Playground has a large oval pad you can connect to, and in the center is a blue-marked Ground rail and red-marked 3.3V rail. The center has side-connected groups, they’re marked in black on top. Once you’re done you can screw on/off the Gizmo as many times as you like. Comes with a PCB that has pre-soldered standoffs attached, and 12x M3 screws for attachment. Fits both Classic and Express Circuit Playgrounds, but the oval pad markings match the CPX pad naming.”
The Circuit Playground Proto Gizmo is now available to purchase from the Adafruit store priced at just $7.95.
