Introduction: Breadboard TIPS

Picture of Breadboard TIPS

Hi, I will share tips on how to make it easy to connect cables from Amphenol AVRdopper to the breadboard, as a bonus there are also LED w / resistor that is easily mounted on a breadboard.
Thank you

Part List :
- 5 pin male header x 2
- 5x2 pin male header x 1
- 2 pin male header x 2
- trainer PCB board x 1
- 3mm LED x 2
- 220 resistor x 2

Step:
1. cutt the trainer PCB board what you need
2. solder them (pin header, LED, resistor, etc.)
3. finish :)

Just a note to let you know I have added this ( a year ago ) to the instructable:

Take a look at a bunch of ideas for using breadboards.

Double row header connectors are a pain to deal with on breadboards. Your method offers some advantages.

Your LED takes up too much breadboard space. Just trim one LED lead shorter, then solder a resistor inline with it. When I want to get fancy I heatshrink wrap the leads. Color coded positive and negative of course!

You don't have to color code. It's easy to look inside the "dome" of the LED. There are two pieces of metal in there, and the bigger one is negative.

to provide a color code on the breadboard I do not think it possible, maybe is a bit inconvenient. I think to find a negative or positive can use the method as described by 4lifenerdfigter.
