1) - SchmartBoards are pre-traced printed circuit boards that support a majority of electronic component types, both through-hole and surface-mount. The pre-traced aspect of the board means there are less wire jumpers required than in other prototyping systems. This makes for a much cleaner board and keeps wiring errors to an absolute minimum.
2)  - The SchmartBoard system allows one to work on a circuit block at a time, and then connect the blocks together using our patent pending technology, called SchmartBridge. By having the ability to work on a block at a time, you can test the individual blocks and then connect them together. This makes testing and trouble-shooting a breeze.
3) - SchmartModules are circuit blocks that are already designed and ready to go. Examples of SchmartModules are I/O, memory, processors, etc. The idea here is why reinvent the wheel? If you are using and RS232 interface in your circuit, it makes more sense to take an RS232 SchmartModule and connect it via a SchmartBridge to your SchmartBoard circuit rather than designing and soldering this block from scratch. The more SchmartModules that you can use in a circuit design, the faster and easier it will be to get the circuit up and running.
4) - In cases where a SchmartModule does not yet exist, you may be able to download a schematic for that function. We have SchmartDevelopers from around the world who design schematics for many different functions for use with SchmartBoard system and post them for you to use for free.
5) - SchmartBoard|ez is our solution for hand soldering surface-mount components. After some extensive R&D we found that two skills are needed to hand-solder surface mount components. First the ability to place the chip on the solder pads and keep it in place to solder, and second the ability to solder such small areas without creating short circuits on the chip legs. SchmartBoard|ez resolves both issues so that virtually anyone can now use surface mount components, even a 10 year old.
