I was wondering what sort of insider "tricks of the trade" some of you might have.
Particularly right now, I'm working on two (my first two
) projects, and would rather not buy a second Uno, but was curious as to what methods you might be using to quickly connect and disconnect a semi-permanent breadboard mess of experimental components to an Arduino.
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.
What sort of connectors? I'm not thinking Mega here with dozens of pins, there will probably only be in the order of 8-16 pins to deal with.
What are the black connectors called like used on the Arduino board, and the bottom of Shields? I think they might be cool if I can fix the wires into them.
