I've made a LED memory game on my breadboard (Arduino UNO) and now i want to solder it on my perfboard. Due to my lack of kndowledge i wanted to ask you guys how to do it. Anyone got an idea? Feel free to make suggestions. I hope someone can help me because I'm really struggling.
I like the perfboards that have the 3 or 4 holes connected together and the power and ground around the periphery.
I do not like the every hole is a separate copper clad point. They seem too crammed together and can be difficult to solder without a short. This statement will gather many replies from folks who love this type of board. So to each his/her own
I also print out a large pattern of the board I use and layout the parts with pencil. If you have a graphics program, ever better.
The best thing I've found to clean these boards is very fine steel wool. it brightens up the copper nicely. But you have to wash the board after using steel wool because steel wool seems to have some kind of lubricant added to it that you'll need to wash off. But after that, solder will flow very nicely.
