Making a project that will fit into a "Altoids Smalls" Mint Tin? Or maybe you just need a small amount of prototyping space and a larger breadboard size is too big? Put down that PCB shear and pick up a Perma-Proto in the new exciting shape!

Customers have asked us to carry basic perf-board, but we never liked the look of most basic perf: its always crummy quality, with pads that flake off and no labeling. Then we thought about how people actually prototype - usually starting with a solderless breadboard and then transferring the parts to a more permanent PCB. That's when we realized what people would really like is a proto board that makes it easy!

This proto-board is the PCB you always wish you had, but never realized it! We took the basic layout of a half-sized breadboard, extended it to the size of a mint tin and turned that into a beautiful PCB. The top side has a white silkscreen, and the same markings you're familiar with, to make transferring components easy. The bottom has 15 rows of 5-hole pad design that matches a classic breadboard, with 2 power bus lines in the middle, and no mask so you can easily cut traces when necessary. There are another 48 holes for general wiring on the edges. We used 1.2mm diameter drill holes so even parts with big leads will fit. All holes are thru-plated for strength - these wont peel off with rework. The finish is a gold plate - you won't get oxidation like with bare copper perf! There are also four big mounting holes so you can attach the PCB to the tin. A perfect match for a Altoids "Smalls"-sized mint tin

Comes three per package. Mint tin is not included, you can get these at most grocery stores or candy stores. Once you use a Perma-Proto board, you'll never go back!

  • 15 rows of double 5-hole rows + 48 individual holes
  • 2 power rails with positive/negative markings
  • 2.1" x 1.3" (54mm x 33mm), 0.063" thick FR4
  • 1.2mm / 0.047" drill holes
  • 4 x 0.125"/3mm drill mounting holes spaced on a 45.5mm x 25.4mm / 1.8" x 1" rectangle

Do exactly what they say on the tin (pun intended)

They work fantastically well as a way of getting projects of tiny breadboard and on to a more permanent solution. By placing the Perma-Proto over the breadboard before plugging anything in, you can easily check that your circuit works as expected

Useful sized, good quality proto board - gold not tin
Monday, 14 April 2014  |  rootScript

A good quality board with V & GND running down the middle two rows.I found this to be a useful size when working with the Teensy 3.1, allowing room for a Teensy and two sensors, along with a row of 4 small switches; just enough space for a small project.

Lovely stuff

Like breadboard and perfboard all in one, these are great, well-made little boards. If they can take my ham-fisted soldering, they can take anything (probably).
