OK, so the idea here is to put together a kit of ready made, common interfacing circuits, so it is possible to extremely quickly, and easily create projects, without digging through your parts for that one resistor you need, or whatever it may be, and then finding a way to easily mount the components.
This is the first part of my little kit of parts, a simple switch. I plan on working my way through most of the common items, like buttons, LEDs, buzzers etc….
If you like to read the end first, This is the the final product
The scematic and a simple drawing of the unit
The bare PCB
Terminal block in place, and the 10k resistor and switch ready to go
Soldering the resistor into place
the resistor soldered, pre lead chop
the completed switch assembly
Two completed assemblys. the space in front of the terminal block is for me to stick a label when i get around to it
Here is one of my switches hooked up to my picaxe 08 box. please ignore the improper LED wireing with no resistor. it works for the quick test.
