"This makes it easy to semi-permanently wire in sensors and LEDs," said Adafruit . Thare is also an SOIC surface mount chip breakout area for devices not in DIP format. "With custom header breakouts that are taller than usual, the proto plate sits above the metal connectors, out of the way and allows for plenty of workspace. We’ll have stackable header kits as well for those who want to put multiple plates on top," said the supplier. Set up by a group of high-flying Camb...
