Since past few published articles, we are talking around developing a grasp on the basic electronic skills. Breadboard Style Prototyping board is a hybrid between Breadboard’s easy design to a naive and gives advanced ways like any prototyping board. Prototyping board traditionally was the way to keep a project. As example, if you have kits like Arduino LED clock, it is actually costly to think even about our way of PCB. Sadly, prototyping boards are not exactly easy to handle despite the lower cost. Breadboards, on the other hand are not designed to have a way to somewhat permanently hold the components.
Breadboard Style Prototyping Board : Power of China Production
Adafruit Perma-Proto was probably the first that type of Breadboard PCB. They are great but often costs too much, so higher quality not always the need. Thankfully, there are affordable Made in China Breadboard Style Prototyping Boards available on various e-commerce websites which looks bad compared to Adafruit Perma-Proto but costs lesser and are exactly like traditional Prototyping Boards. At present, such things are not very popular mainly because peoples do not know them. The board forces star configuration power supply which is mandatory in common electronics work.
How To Use Breadboard Style Prototyping Board
Take an example project in to consideration – Arduino LED clock. First you need the components, then select a proper size board and have some tools like :
- Wire cutter
- Soldering iron
If you dislike soldering, there is old way – wire wrapping.
We think, these Breadboard Style Prototyping Boards are best with wire wrapping way of wiring resulting in less issues to a naive around errors. For the initial design, we suggest to draw the total thing on an engineering pad or graph paper and place the components to test.
They can be found with various names like Solderable PC BreadBoard. Performing search on Amazon will reveal the current price around $7 per unit for the medium things for ordinary quality. They costs around 10 times compared to a traditional good quality Prototyping Board but reduces the wiring. We noticed a good quality manufacturer :
