[pi8] The Breadboard

The breadboard is a way of connecting electronic components to each other without having to solder them together. They are often used to test a circuit design before creating a Printed Circuit Board (PCB).

The holes on the breadboard are connected in a pattern.

In the middle, the columns of wires are connected together with a break in the middle. So, for example, all the green holes marked are connected together, but they are not connected to the yellow holes, nor the purple ones. Therefore, any wire you poke into the green holes will be connected to other wires poked into the other green holes.
