 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

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?

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  smiley  )
