How to use a Prototype PCB

2016/11/27 9:07:21

Because of cost problem, I would use a prototype board. I have used those once before and it was a clear mess. I kept shorting IC pins while connecting lines to them fried a whole PCB. But it was a not so good experience. I attribute this failure to my incompetence in soldering on the prototype boards. I can do a clean solder on any PCB in a kit but I think prototype boards are a different ball game. So I want to know do anyone have tips on using such boards?

By using wire wrap wire you will reduce the amount of excess wire you have and reduce the chances of creating shorts, and make a good mechanical connection.

What I do is to start with a piece of graph paper with a 100mil grid. You can set the components out and draw connections and start with a good layout plan.
