Solder-tag board opens way to low cost prototyping

A 40-pin solder-tag board for the Raspberry Pi credit-card sized computer board has been introduced by RS Components. Exclusively available from RS, the solder-tag board is ideal for electronics engineers developing prototypes based around the Raspberry Pi board, as well as being well suited for education and the training of students and electronics beginners.

Developed to work with the Raspberry Pi, the solder-tag board is the same size and offers a total of 40 solder-tag terminals, matching the 40 pins on the Raspberry Pi.

Connecting via the Raspberry Pi’s GPIO header connector, essentially the RS Pro board offers users and developers flexible prototyping abilities by providing a simple means of soldering and de-soldering electronic components via easy to make and break solder connections.

The very low cost of the high-quality SRBP board also means it can be replaced cheaply.

The holes in the tag board align with the mounting holes in the Raspberry Pi, which enables the tag board to be mounted beneath the Raspberry Pi board using an additional mounting kit that consists of four legs and eight screws.

In addition, the central slot in the solder-tag board allows a ribbon cable to pass through it.
