Hi there everybody,
I need to use a Piezo buzzer, servo and a keypad.
All of these require the same power pins. What would I do in order to get that power to multiple components.
Would I use a breadboard and connect there or something else?

Thank you for all the help!
(I am a noob, so...)

Wire them all to the same pin.

Having said that, running a servo of the 5V regulated pin sometimes causes random resets. It depends on how much current it takes and how electrically noisy it is.

Thank you,
But what do you mean wire them all to the same pin?
I'm not much of an electrician/hardware programmer ( I do software programming :P (mainly) )

If you have three components that all need 5V and one pin that has 5V on it, then wire all three components to the same 5V pin.
(or else stick to software  :)  )

Thank you Grumpy_Mike
I just realized the +/- on the breadboard.

Don't foget use small capacitor from 5v to gnd if connection cable are longer  than 15 cm for reduce noise
