Size of Breakout Boards

Post by victorf » Fri Apr 23, 2010 4:33 am

It is a bit difficult to ascertain the size of a BOB or SEN board from the jpeg images presented. I download the large image and then measure/scale dimensions to get a rough idea of the amount of real estate the board will take up on my PCB. I would like to get a better idea of the actual size. Would it be possible for SFE to publish the actual board dimensions?

Any enlightenment will be appreciated.

It is annoying. I once needed the exact dimensions and the position of the connector on one of their BO boards. I eventually got it out of them, but it wasn't easy.

They put dimensions on most of their components, it wouldn't be really difficult to do the same for breakouts.

Sorry guys! We try to get real dimensions on every board but a few have fallen through the cracks. If you need something, spark at sparkfun . com is who to ask. The tech support guys get to almost everything, and we'd be happy to get dimensions up. Same goes for Eagle PCB files, please just ask.

I don't see links to actual products so please post here or email us and we'll try to get it corrected.
