IXM Proto Cell

View Cart

The Illuminato X Machina Proto Cell adds some hackability to the IXM ecosystem. With 191 solderable pads, the IXM Proto provides a direct interface that maps analog RC circuits to an IXM cell. It serves nicely as a DIY IXM cell!

The IXM Proto also includes onboard voltage regulators that bring down the 12V rail to 5V or 3.3V, providing a simple way to build custom circuit projects or connect directly to sensors

The backside of the IXM Proto provides a flush surface to mount an additional mini breadboard

Comes assembled or as a kit.
