Welcome to BrainBoardz
The modular system for prototyping, production and fun!

BrainBoardz is a revolutionary modular Mini PCI Express (mPCIe) based system that greatly simplifies circuit board design and the development of custom microcontroller based boards.  Through the use of our expanding range of hot-swappable Neuron modules and BrainBoardz prototyping boards anyone can easily develop custom projects to harness the impressive capabilities of the latest generation Espressif microcontroller. Simply connect an ESP32-S3 based Neuron module to one of our many BrainBoardz, connect a USB cable and you are ready to go! Neurons provide full access to the extensive range of capabilities provided by the cutting edge Espressif ESP32-S3, and they can also function as standalone modules if required.

Our mission is to empower designers to develop their own circuit board designs based on our advanced surface mount friendly mPCIe architecture. The entire BrainBoardz system is fully documented, open source and 100% license free.

Neurons can be easily added or removed from a BrainBoardz. The mPCIe connector approach supports ultra-low profile projects and guarantees microcontroller module re-usability. There are no fragile pins to contend with in the BrainBoardz system. We fully support Arduino and CircuitPython, MicroPython and PlatformIO. It’s simply Plug and Code.

Neurons and BrainBoardz are manufactured in Toronto, Canada using lead-free soldering processes. Our boards are very affordable and built to withstand the most extreme conditions. Are you ready for a prototyping revolution?
