Electronics enthusiasts might be interested in a new breadboard powerhouse that is perfect for supporting prototypes of electronic projects. Simply attach the power station to your breadboard and it can provide a multitude of different voltages in the form of 3.3V, 5V, + 12V, -12V as well as adjustable voltages between 1V-25V with currents up to 1.5A. Created by Walid Issa, an electronics engineer and solution developer based in Sheffield, UK. The mini power plant is perfect for the hobbyist, developer and manufacturer. Early booking promise from the supporters are now available for the electronics project starting at around $ 40 or £ 30 (depending on current exchange rates).
Functions of the mini bread board power plant
The board was tested under the highest current of 1.5 A and a thermal top view and side view are shown below. The plate can be considered warm if the temperature does not exceed 53 ° C. 1. Stretch gate | £ 70,000: TikStation with OLED An OLED display is added to show the voltages and currents for each output. 2. Stretch gate | £ 90k: Master Electronics Kit The circuit board is made as a kit with all the basic electronic parts required to start your projects i.e. resistors, capacitors, inductors, LEDs, diodes, transistors, motors, sensors, lamps, soldering irons and multimeters.
If the Mini Power Station’s crowdfunding campaign successfully achieves its required commitment target and production progresses smoothly, it is expected to ship worldwide sometime in March 2022.
“3. Stretch Goal | £ 120,000: Electronics Curriculum for All Levels The electronics kit board comes with a curriculum suitable for all levels of learning from basic to advanced subjects. 4. Stretch goal | £ 200,000: OPEN SOURCED All designs, project details and files will be open source on Github. “
