Teensy 3.5/3.6 Breakout Kit Review(Revision A, DIP-64)
Assembly of a 64 pin breakout board for the Teensy 3.5/3.6 USB development board.
Designed by Tall-Dog and available on Tindie, this breakout board breaks out all the inaccessible bottom pads and all 18 additional digital GPIO pins on the Teensy 3.5/3.6 series boards. A standard version that breaks out all pins is also available. It comes as a kit, bareboard, or fully assembled with a Teensy 3.5 or 3.6.
I ordered the DIP-64 kit version and soldered a Teensy 3.5 with “Flip-Pins” designed by Oshchip to connect both together.
The kit was well packaged with good quality parts.
The assembly instructions are available online, and the kit goes together well. There are over 200 solder connections needed to complete the assembly, and it is important to follow the sequence in the instructions as some connections are inaccessible after certain parts are assembled. The board is well thought out, and is well labeled with pin identification silkscreened on the board. Jumpers are included with the kit and are optional in place of the switches.
I highly recommend this breakout board if you need to access the bottom pads of the Teensy USB development board for prototyping. This breakout board version also fits into a standard 64-pin DIP socket. There is also an A2 revision that adds scored carrier rails with mounting holes now.
