The Cuttlefish

Cuttlefish layout

The Cuttlefish is a PCB version of the low cost Arduino-compatible Shrimp, that is designed for use in both breadboard prototyping and more permanent projects, including header pins for the former and mounting holes for the latter.

The board is used by Embecosm in outreach initiatives and workshops with people of all different age groups, providing a gentle introduction to PCBs and soldering, for those who have progressed from building Shrimp projects on breadboard.


Embecosm commissioned Boldport to layout a board design that was fun, approachable and functional, using their open source EDA tool, PCBModeE.
