RS232 Breakout Board (v0.20) for Raspberry-Pi

I found some time to finish of the design for the Raspbery Pi RS232 brakout board. I followed Frank Buss’s advice on the RPi forum and added a 3.3V regulator to give more current to the 3.3V for the prototyping area.

Schematics are here.

I’ve a couple more breakout boards in the works:

RPi_ProtoBoard – A basic prototyping board with a 3.3V regulator. The 3.3V regulator can be powered from an internal (i.e RPi 5V) or external (9V-12V PSU wall adapter) power source.

RPi_XBee – A XBee breakout board with on board power regulator and small prototyping area.

** UPDATE: The first PCB’s have arrived see here and heres the first built board **

  1. Hi, Where can I buy these from? Or can I get the drawings to get my own PCBs made up?

    I’m also keen on one of these. How’d the tests fair ? Will they be up for sale soon ?

      Hi Martin
      I’m getting some boards made as we speak of this board and a couple of other designs. So it should be a couple of weeks to get them back. I’ve changed to PCB size to make them smaller and cheaper to make.

    This is pretty cool, taking serial devices technology of RS232 and incorporating. I will be following for updates,

    I’m also interested.How can I buy it?

    • zuzebox says:

      We’ve got our second shipment of PCB’s coming, due to arrive at the end of the month.

      At the moment we’re planning on offering it as a blank PCB and a self assembled kit. We’ll update everyone once the shipment has arrived

  5. Steve says:

    are these for sale?

  6. Marco says:

    Partco does not deliver outside Finland. And nobody else seems to sell them. I would like to buy a few minipiio’s very much. How?
