Bud Industries’ Board-ganizer™ Enclosure Provides a Stow-Away Workspace for Multiple Development Boards

Unique Enclosure Solves Problem of Organizing and Protecting Breadboard Projects under Development

10/07/2013

CLEVELAND, Ohio — October 3, 2013Bud Industries, a leading manufacturer of electronic enclosures, announced a solution to the problem of organizing multiple development boards and a maze of wiring. Using a revolutionary “flat or folded” approach, the patent-pending Board-ganizer enclosure provides a tidy work platform, keeps components of a design project in one place, and makes breadboarded designs easy to store and transport. A video demonstration is available at www.budind.com/90.

Popular PC development boards such as the Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Freescale Freedom, etc. easily attach to the Board-ganizer using adhesive rubber feet. Up to three development boards and a breadboard may be installed on a single enclosure. The enclosure’s hinged design makes it easy to work on a project with the boards located side by side and later to fold the project into a compact 5”x5”x3” enclosure with no need to disconnect any wires.

Ideal for designers, hobbyists and students, the enclosure kit includes four side panels and two snap-in top panels, all molded of smoke-colored ABS plastic. It also includes 20 adhesive rubber feet and four pins for connecting the side panels together. Both 600- and 300-tie-point solder-less breadboards and a jump wire bundle are available as accessories.

“With the Board-ganizer, application developers can stop worrying about what the cleaning crew might accidentally do to their projects after the workday is over—they can just fold it up and store everything safely away,” said Blair Haas, Bud Industries’ President. “It offers similarly convenient storage for the home and classroom.”
