Board Overview

The Benchtop Power Board Kit enables you to power up embedded electronics projects from a benchtop power supply. The kit breaks out the most commonly used voltages for physical computing projects to binding posts, including 3.3V, 5V, 12V and -12V.

Each power rail is spaced to fit banana jacks, and has a replaceable 5A fuse on it. It connects to a standard computer supply via an ATX connector. This board will require assembly before use.
