Breadboards & Prototyping

When making our circuits, we’ll be using breadboards to make working with circuits easy. Here are some considerations to keep in mind while working with them.


As this image shows, the two rows on either side of the breadboard vertically, traditionally used for Positive voltage and Ground are connected vertically. The center holes are connected horizontally, but only for the first 5 holes. The center separates connectivity so DIP ICs can be plugged in down the center. Anything plugged into the adjacent holes will be connected to the pin.
