Button Board v1.0

This idea came about from needing LEDs, buttons, trim pots and switches on hand to do quick tests on various devices. Most of the time, I just needed something to test an audio trigger or response from a sensor.

All too often, the item I needed wouldn’t be where I needed it. I often do work away from my main electronics bench, so I thought it would be a good idea to have some sort of modular device that included all the basics for testing. Enter the “Button Board”.

This is version 1.0. A number if improvements need to be made. I thought the double header would be helpful. It wasn’t. Besides being underutilized, it ate up more space than needed. It’s also only obvious to me how the ground/hot connections should be made. There are some simple hidden capabilities that I thought of only as I was building it from my very simple drawing. I’m going to use this for a while and then maybe make another one that is more refined.
