Breadboard PCB By Feature

Protoboard PCB

Protoboard is used by PCB hobbyists and experts alike. You can avail of double-sided ones or single-sided ones as you like.

Perfboard PCB

Perfboard is another term for Breadboard, but it is sometimes also referred to as a Dot Board. It’s a Rigid PCB type.

FR4 Breadboard PCB

FR4 is the typical fiberglass material used for breadboards, with the usual color of green or white.

Breadboard PCB

With the regular ones, plate-through holes are possible. Alternately, you can select the variant with only one side of the pads.

Solderless Breadboard PCB

With the solderless board, go through the holes to attach parts. With this, you can select the component and place them easily.

mini breadboard pcb

A miniscule board that can fit the palm of your hand, this type is for designing and experimenting with tiny circuits.

What is a Breadboard?

A breadboard is used in the following situations:

  • As part of the product development process, you are testing electrical connections.
  • You’re interested in PCBs and learning about electronics. So you are using this board to experiment.
  • You are working on a PCB project and making a prototype.

In a strict sense, breadboards are not circuit boards.

This concern is covered in the following section.

What is the Breadboard Compared to a Printed Circuit Board

What is a Breadboard Compared to a Printed Circuit Board?

Consider a printed circuit board as a more sophisticated breadboard.

Since these two terms are sometimes combined in informal usage, we use the term “Breadboard PCB” in this article.

In other words, PCBs are not breadboards.

Perfboards, Protoboards, and Development Board are some common names for breadboards that are similar and accurate.

If you require a Breadboard PCB, there are many options available.

But one thing is for sure, the useful breadboard is a temporary fixture.

What Exactly is a Breadboard PCB?

As we have discussed, a breadboard is not exactly a PCB.

So, a Breadboard PCB is simply a breadboard which has the following utility:

  • You can mount ICs on it on the breadboard’s holes
  • You can mount power buses which will power the ICs
  • You can mount LED lights as indicators to know if ICs work properly

After finding what works and what does not in your breadboard, you can proceed.

The PCB is the finished outcome of your prototyping.

PCBTok has spent the entirety of its ten years in business perfecting the PCBs we produce.

Our highly qualified engineers and staff developed our manufacturing process. We conduct numerous tests before rolling out our Breadboard PCB, including:

  • In-Circuit Test, or ICT
  • Flying Probe Test
  • Automated Optical Inspection (AOI)
  • Microscope or Microsection tests

According to size, this kind of prototyping PCB can also be made to order.

However, it is primarily made to cater to the unique requirements of DIY PCB enthusiasts and students.

Breadboard PCB Fabrication

Types of Breadboard PCB Explained

Every Breadboard PCB is used according to its type. The way of classifying these is through size.

  • Full Breadboard PCB – this distinction is given to boards that have top and bottom rows, and also boards that four long rows. There are actually two lengths of the full board, so it can be called “Full+” and “Full”.
  • Half & Half Breadboard PCBs – Horizontal rows are numbered up to 30 only, because it only measures 5.5 cm x 8.5 cm.
  • Mini & Tiny Breadboard PCBs – Does not have top and bottom rows
Applications of Breadboard PCB

The goal of making use of a breadboard PCB is testing. The following are the usual applications:

  • Devices below 10Hz (not high frequency)
  • Devices that rely on through hole technology (not SMD)
  • DiP and microcontrollers can be mounted (up to 64MHz)
  • SPI and I2C can be used if not high-speed
  • Rearranging of components without soldering
  • Prototyping with components that exude moderate vibration

How Does a Breadboard Work?

Here are the basics, in detail:

  • The size you need and how you plan to use the board are determined by your PCB design.
  • Utilize the breadboard schematic/diagram
  • Put the components, like leads and pins, in place
  • Use the ground, positive, and negative buses for wiring.
  • Testing is important in the PCB designing process.
  • You need to ensure that the resistors and capacitors work together in harmony.
  • As well, the power bus lines need to be in working order.
What Are the Advantages of Breadboard?

There are many diverse uses for a breadboard.

To experiment with your PCB design, you don’t need to invest a lot of cash.

As you test the PCB Layout to see if it functions at all, you can take the components out and re-connect them.

The self-adhesive nature of some of these boards makes it convenient for you.

Before committing to a final PCB design, you can test.

Finally, you don’t have to solder which adds complications in modification.
