Happy Holidays!

The Wayne & Layne store will be closed over the holidays, specifically December 19-26 when no orders will be shipped. Before the 19th, most orders will ship out the next day from our office in Minneapolis, MN, USA. We typically ship orders early in the morning, so any orders placed after 7am US Central Time will likely ship on the next day. Any orders placed after 5pm December 19th will ship out on December 27th.

Want to connect LEGO Mindstorms NXT motors or sensors to your own custom-made Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs)? These are the same custom, injection-molded NXT-compatible sockets that are used in the Bricktronics Shield, Bricktronics Megashield, and the Bricktronics Breakout Board, but now available separately, for integration into your own PCBs.

Use it

To add this socket to your PCB design, you first need a footprint. Fortunately, we have created a nice diagram showing the outline of the socket, the locations of all the holes, and suggested PCB pad size and orientation.

You can also download the PCB design files for the Bricktronics Breakout Board from the Bricktronics Downloads page, to see how we designed our footprint.
