Electronics Newbie Alert - breadboards and power supplies


(Simon Eves) #1

Hey all,

I’m relatively new to the space and need to do a little bit of experimenting with some basic circuitry in relation to an LED sign project I’m working on.

Are there any breadboards in the space that I can hook up to a power supply to and try stuff out in the real world (simulations are only so good)?

Happy to source myself, but just wanted to check there’s not already provision.

Thanks!
Simon

Hey Simon,

I think there are some breadboards on the top shelf of the electronics bench, and there’s definitely a power supply. You may have to rummage around a little for the breadboard and jumper cables though, or just use some solid core wire if you can’t find any of the latter…

I would suggest solid wire as already mentioned. If you are a little ocd then you may find it pleasing to cut the wire to precise lengths.

I’ve enjoyed that video! Math does come to the rescue.

Thanks Filip!

This looks great, thanks. Is there a pair of those awesome wire strippers in the space?

Yes
