Handy self-adhesive patches allow users to add or replace components

16-02-2015 | Mouser Electronics | Design & Manufacture

Allowing users to add components to, or replace components on, any substrate such as a printed circuit board, Schmartboard's SchmartPatch is now available from Mouser. The SchmartPatch board allows users to cut off an appropriate pad, stick it on to the surface (with the adhesive already on the back of the SchmartPatch) and then solder a component onto the SchmartPatch. There are also pads to solder jumper wires to make the electrical connection. The board has 10 pads that can be cut off as needed for prototyping, repair, development and maintenance needs.
