Brisbane, Australia May 12, 2013 - Protostack, an innovative Australian developer and retailer of microcontroller components have increased their product range with addition of a host of new components for prototypers and developers.

For prototypers with limited workspace, Protostack now offers 170 tie point mini breadboards with the diminutive dimensions 47 x 35 x 8.5 mm (1.8" x 1.4" x 0.3") and weighing in a paltry 13 grams. They feature a self-adhesive backing and phosphor bronze nickel plated spring clips.

To help those with big sausage fingers, Protostack now stock a range of tweezers to help with handling and precision locating of those tiny electronic components.

  • 10 Pin to 6 Pin AVR programming adapters
  • 300mm male to male jumpers - Ribbon of 40 wires perfect for PCB prototyping
  • USB Type A Male Connector featuring through hole design that can be modified for use on Protostack boards
  • 1N5391 general purpose 1.5A rectifier diodes, suitable for replacing 1N4004 diodes on microcontroller board power supplies when extra current is required
  • 2N2907 PNP general purpose transistor

These products and a range of other microcontroller components are now available for purchase from the Protostack online store at www.protostack.com.
