Making permanent connections is as easy as pie for fans of the credit-card size computer sensation known as Raspberry Pi. Available in full, half and quarter sizes at leading electronics distributor Newark element14, Adafruit’s Perma-Proto for Pi Breadboard PCB kits feature the same labelled breakouts as their Pi Cobbler, assuring a seamless transition.

The boards also offer the same familiar 5-hole pad design that matches a classic breadboard, with 4 power bus lines on the sides, and no masks, which makes fast work of cutting traces.

1.2mm diameter drill holes were used so that even parts with big leads will fit. All holes are thru-plated for strength and the gold plat finish prevents oxidation.

As Adafruit’s premier Raspberry partner, Newark element14 offers a wide selection of Adafruit Raspberry Pi accessories and is the first supplier to receive their new Pi products.
