Clear Breadboard Chosen

In eChucK, Music on February 1, 2011 at 7:54 am

On the advice of DIY hobbyist tjookum, I have decided to switch the protoboard selected forr eChucK to the one shown below.

This breadboard is a little bit larger, well a good bit larger, and has power supply rails for convenience and ti improve circuit wiring ease.  One thing that I really like about it is that the plastic is clear so beginners can see where the connections are made underneath.

To reiterate, it is essential to select one and only one breadboard for eChucK’s beginnings because at first it will be breadboard only, then later we will make PCBs in that exact breadboard pattern so that designs may be transferred from breadboard to PCB.  This way the DIY enthusiast can enjoy the convenience of breadboard construction, and also still have the benefits of PCB construction for a more permanent solution.  More details to follow, stay tuned.
