The :CREATE Proto Board for BBC microbit is an electronics prototyping system that allows for both through hole and SMT component types in the same circuits.
Create prototype circuits using surface mount and/or conventional components with the :CREATE Proto Board for the BBC microbit. The design features a twin grid system that allows for circuits to be made of a mixture of surface mount and through hole. That the circuits are soldered makes for robust prototyping. No more reattaching jumper cables every time you need to move your project.
The through holes are on a 2.54mm (0.1) pitch grid and the surface mount pads on a 1.27mm (0.05) pitch grid. These grid sizes are designed for most common components to fit. The surface mount pads are also designed to be linked with solder so small tracks can be made. Also, all BBC micro:bit pins are broken out and are available to connect to the prototype area.
In order to create a common ground for your projects you will need to create a connection between the microbit GND breakout pad and one of the four (-) negative pads, located next to the Terminal Block area. This can be done by soldering a wire in place between the two.
