All-a-bread-board the Fritzing Train!

Let’s get Fritzing!

Remove the Green Highlights

For a really clean look!

After about 40 hours of hand-numbing drawing, clicking, importing… over and over and over… we finally have a Spark Core Fritzing part, complete with Breadboard, Schematic and PCB View!

Get it here: (175)

There is an example project of the infamous TMP36 temperature sensor in the projects directory. Check it out:

Let’s see what you can create! :spark:


Posted it up on as well:


WOW :clap: This is amazing. What tool did you use to draw it?

Thanks @mohit! I used my tried and true CorelDRAW v12. One day I might get Illustrator, but I’m pretty efficient in CorelDRAW so I pretty much just stick with it.

I can’t believe all that attention to detail there!

Oh wow, thanks guys! :blush:

I was finding it frustrating to quickly show an example of how to prototype something with the Spark Core :spark:
So now that we have this, it should be a great way to make a quick tutorial or schematic. I’d probably still use Eagle for real schematics and pcbs, but this has a nice charm to it for tutorials.

Submitted part to Fritzing as well:


Awesome dude!

This reminds me, @zach do you guys have a Sketchup model of the Spark Core?

If not I could perhaps use @bdub’s drawing here as a texture for one? :smile:

With a Sketchup model I could convert it to DAE format then to VRML so it could be used as a 3D part in DipTrace and Kicad.

Seriously @BDub - you’re a force of nature.



Great job… Looks great. I’m loving Fritzing too…

@Will once made a 3D model for the Core v0.1, but it would need to be updated. @will want to give that a redux?

@zach yeah happy too! I’ll add it to the old “To-Do” list and post it back here once I have a chance to update.

Please note (if not already done) that the TX/RX pins are in the reverse order on the board layout.

What do you mean by reverse? You need to connect the TX to the RX respectively from your slave device.

I mean if you compare the Fritzing schematic with the actual device (and logical diagram) you will see that RX label should be TX and TX should be RX. So the Fritzing schematic is to be corrected. (correct order is Vin, GND, TX, RX, A7… and not Vin, GND, RX, TX, A7… as currently drawn).
A small detail that may be confusing when connecting other devices.


Opps sorry. You meant the Fritzing part! I thought it was about the device silkscreen itself. :smiley:
