Teensy BOB

A Breakout Board for a Teensy LC and screw terminals.

Similar projects worth following
This is my first "real" PCB, as in, something I'm designing to solve my own problem. I use a lot of Teensy LC boards on proto-boards with screw terminal, and rather than using proto-boards I think I can create a small, simple PCB do to what I need. I still don't know quite what I'm doing, but the only way to figure things out is to try, right? (Feel free to tell me what I'm doing wrong!)

The Teensy Breakout Board v1.4 was designed to allow for the use of screw terminals with the Teensy LC (though it does work with the Teensy 3.x boards as well.) It does not break out all of the pins, but it does solve some specific problems. Besides adding a method to mount a Teensy via mounting holes, you can add in 2.54mm pitch screw terminals to make it easy to connect and disconnect wires.

These boards were made for people who need to easily replace components that might wear out (such as buttons) without having to solder new ones in place. Replacing things requires only a screwdriver. Originally designed to be used in museum exhibits, I've found these boards useful for other projects and thought it might be worth sharing.

For many of the things I plan to put these in (museum exhibits) I'm already breaking out more pins than I typically need. In most cases it's less than 12 pins we use, but I figured I'd break out more. I'm still figuring all this stuff out, so I'm sure I'll do more versions of this as I keep learning.

Oh well, then as long as it does the job you thought it for, that's fine :D

Since you're doing a breakout board for the Teensy LC, why wouldn't you breakout those 4 missing pins? You still have plenty of space
