This breakout board designed in KiCad makes it easy to put a rotary encoder and pull-up resistors on a breadboard. (Thanks to Enrico for the idea to add pull-up resistors). The footprints on the back are meant for 1206 SMD resistors. I choose 1K Ohm resistors, marked
102, when I assembled this board.
Here is the OSH Park shared project for the board:
The KiCad design files are available on GitHub:
I used this KiCad symbol and footprint by Mike Cousins for a Sparkfun rotary encoder:
I’ve verified that these rotary encoders fit:
- SparkFun Rotary Encoder (COM-09117)
- Bourns PEC12R-4220F-S0024-ND (DigiKey)
