Original Press Release:

The Options Board Adds Standard Connector Formats for Easy Prototyping

The iconic Veroboard is the definitive product in the physical prototyping world, and, based around the venerable DIN41612 connector, Vero Technologies manufactures a huge range of different board designs. The latest version, the modular Options Board family, provides a simple method of providing multiple interconnect formats. Available initially in 3U and 6U 160mm and 6U 220 and 280mm boards in single and double sided square pad and stripline formats, and as a square pad PTH board, the new units feature a cutout at one or both ends to accommodate a mezzanine board that is pre-configured to accept Min D and USB connectors. The Options Board makes it very easy to create an interface between, for example, a backplane-based test system and a piece of stand-alone equipment.

The single ended boards feature the traditional DIN41612 connector at one end; at the other, there is a choice of mezzanine boards for a 15-way min D and USB A and B, a 25-way Min D and USB A or B or a 37-way Min D. The double-ended versions enable mezzanine boards to be mixed and matched as required.

Additional mezzanine boards will be introduced over the next few months. Formats include a 2mm 3U cPCI card, a 6U VME64 P0 connector and a 6U HD metric connector, with other, application-specific designs available to customer order. The Options family is available ex-stock online at
