PCB type: FR4 plated through
PCB dimensions: 18,8 x 16,2 x 1,5 mm
For connectors (not included) with pitch breadboard compatible: 2,54 mm
Bottom copper as ground plane / small heatsink: yes
Solder mask isolation layer: yes
Exposed copper surface: gold plated
ROHS compliant
Note: The surface of copper bottom layer works as a small heatsink. As this surface have a small area, the thermal resistance is high and is not to be used in full power for many seconds. To avoid overheating of the semiconductor device, your tests should use low power, or the power applied for short time, or use a low duty cycle.
