 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi

I am looking to move my project from a solderless prototyping board to a soldered prototyping board.

Is there any where I can buy a soldered version of this? I like the way I can easily provide ground and power to a row, and that rows are electronically connected but not columns.



Thanks

If you can't wait, I've found that Radio Shack carries a very nice board (http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103800).  This board has rows of 3 holes and alternating power/ground lines.

Not exactly what you're looking for, but useful in a pinch.  One of the Shack's better products.

They also have something closer to your breadboard (http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2102846) but it only has power and ground on opposite sides - the adafruit boards look to be much nicer and only slightly higher cost.

FWIW,

Brad.

I would recommend a socket for the AVR as well (or 2 14 pin sockets if you cant find one narrow 28 pin socket) Every stinking time I solder a avr into a perfboard, I have to remove it for some reason or another. now you have junk on the leads and loose wire bits flopping around where it used to be soldered, much simpler to unplug.

I always use sockets on all the ICs in my prototype boards. For fault finding being able to remove a chip is good. Also I can reuse the chips after if the prototype is not going to be kept.

Would you guys mind clarifying this AVR/socket thing?

if it is what I think it is - I like the sound of it.

I am having a massive faff with my tangle of wires surrounding my arduino project because I can't re-program the arduino from where it sits due to the length of the USB cable so I am having to unplug about 20 cables when I need to take the arduino to the computer. Nightmare!

You can also do wire wrapping if you may need to modify the wiring. Wrapped wires are pretty tight and it's easy to unwrap.

Besides, look into Zero Insertion Force sockets. If you want to take the ATMEGA328P chip off your project to program it on an arduino, a ZIF socket is quick and easy.

On the other hand, for tangled up cables, here is a solution I designed to manage cables. No more wires going back to your arduino board. All wires stay on the breadboard. You don't have to take apart your current project to start your next project either. Easy to return to a project, such as an LCD hookup without rewiring it up.
