EdwardM Posted January 20, 2006 Report Share Posted January 20, 2006 HiFor some years now I've used a simple way of protoyping on 0.1in perforated boards which usually guarantees first time working. I simply make an outline of each IC and pin name used as well as power supply terminals in a drawing program and then print them on paper. Each outline is then stuck down on the perforated board using paper glue. It's then very easy to follow your circuit diagram to join up each node of the circuit and it's a very useful aid in debugging.My favourite program is Visio, I'm sure there are many others, where you set up a 0.1in printing grid for each drawing and just add IC's until the page is full, I then cut out shapes as necessary, using a scalpel, and glue them to the perforated board.As an example, here's one I made much earlier.No doubt there are many using this idea, but so far I haven't met themEnjoyEd Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
