We go through a lot of prototype PCBs, and end up with lots of extras that we never use. Every Sunday we give away a few professionally-made PCBs from one of our past or future projects, or a related prototype.

This is version 2 of the web server on a business card Ian posted at Hack a Day. It follows the original design, but it adds a Nokia color LCD knock-off to the back of the PCB. The LCD is driven by extra pins on the microcotnroller, otherwise all other pin connections are the same as version 1. This PCB works with same fimware as version 1.

This week we’re giving away one blank PCB for the v2 prototype, PCB by BatchPCB. We’ve only got two boards, and one is already assembled. This design has an issue or two. The blue wire on the left connects a few power pins that are  unrouted, the PCB won’t work without this jumper. Also, the SD card holder may not be available anywhere.

This is a buggy, two-of-a-kind prototype, so we ask that the winner have some SMD soldering or other project experience. Request the free PCB in the comments, but please post a link to a web site or picture that shows a project you’ve done. Be sure to use a real e-mail in the address field so we can contact you for shipping info. Some rules after the break.

Some rules we might adhere to:

  • There’s only one of these and it’s broken, so we want to give it to someone with ‘experience’.
  • Yes, we’ll mail it anywhere in the world!
  • Limit one PCB per address per month
  • We reserve the right to ignore any request
  • We’re not responsible for the PCB actually arriving in the mail, no postal insurance or replacement option is available
  • Like everything else on this site, this PCB is offered without warranty
