Platino, the Return
Back in October 2011 we presented Platino, a project where the lead role was for a printed circuit board rather than a circuit. The purpose of Platino was to ease the adding of a microcontroller with display, knobs and buttons to a project. Almost five years on the Platino concept is still a valid one so we decided to give it a makeover.

Download the BOM list
The BOM (Bill of Materials) is the technically exhaustive listing of parts and other hardware items used to produce the working and tested prototype of any Elektor Labs project. The BOM file contains deeper information than the Component List published for the same project in Elektor Magazine. If required the BOM gets updated directly by our lab engineers. As a reader, you can download the list here.
