Unofficial Core/Photon protoboard

Hi all!

Some time ago when moving a Photon project from a breadboard to universal PCB I came with a idea for custom protoboard which should make it easier. Main goals were to have same/similar pinout to a breadboard and to use double entry SMD headers to make the profile super thin. Here are the results (will post photos tomorrow):

If anyone wants one you can order it on OSHPark or use the source Eagle/Gerber files to make it yourself.

Let me know what do you think about it, if there’s something you would change or add :slight_smile:


I would respect the keepout area under the antenna.

Here’s the documentation.

Thx Andy! I wasn’t aware of this.

Also I was wondering if whole Core/Photon should be moved to far right as currently USB plug would cover part of it anyway.

All of the above, and perhaps make it suitable for the electron as well?

I’ll address the issues above later today :slight_smile:

Here’s modified version:

Any notes? :slight_smile:

Unfortunately there is no Electron Eagle element at the moment so Electron version will have to wait a bit.
