DIP sounds good since this will probably see burned chips here and there.

We could use a ceramic chip for the caps 22uf/25v(1210) x2 , I have a ton of those and they are pretty cheap. Lets give it a shot and compare notes.

Ok, I've got a DIP version all layed out with just a single via, ICSP, and FTDI connector.  Run from Vin thru unfused 5v regulator, or bypass regulator with +5v directly.
Any thoughts?
Needs some board labeling work still.

"ceramic chip for the caps 22uf/25v(1210) x2 "
Send the eagle reference for that, should be easy to add in.
100uF on regulator output does seem a little overkill here.

Not to rain on anybodies parade, but that's what the BBB is:

It has a FTDI connector too, and a pair of pins that go down into the power rail so you don't have to jumper power into it.

I was thinking of just having multiple small (or large) breadboards that bring all their pin and power leads to a single pin-header, then I can simply connect and disconnect a board without too much stress.

Would this work? http://liudr.wordpress.com/gadget/phi-connect/

Thanks for mentioning my design  smiley

If you need to move between two projects you can use 1 or even just 2 RBBB but you can't use any shield with RBBB. Plugging it and unplugging it is a bit hard (too many pins) on my larger breadboards but is ok on the tiny breadboards I used. They're all kind of loose. If you need to use shields with prototyping, the phi-connect is better. The arduino clones such as BBB or RBBB are designed to support pure breadboard prototyping without shields.
