In This Chapter
Probing the depths of a solderless breadboard
Creating a no-fuss, no-muss circuit with a solderless breadboard
Soldering — safely — like the pros
Owning up to and fixing soldering mistakes (like the pros)
Solidifying your circuit relationship with a solder breadboard or a perf board
Achieving circuit-building nirvana: your very own custom printed circuit board (PCB)
You’ve carefully set up your workbench, strategically positioned your shiny new toys — oops! we meant tools — to impress your friends, shopped around for the best deals on resistors and other components, and now you’re ready to get down to business and build some light-flashing, noisemaking circuits. So how do you transform an unassuming two-dimensional circuit diagram into a real, live, working (maybe even moving) electronic circuit?
In this chapter, we show you various ...
