I'm afraid that you're going to have to learn to solder if you want to use DIP devices.
Breadboard: easy, but definitely not a long-term solution.
sorry im asking what is it.
Its a plastic board with a grid of holes in, used for prototyping. You push the components into the holes, which are connected in rows, then push bits of wire in where needed to make more connections and you have a circuit.
what do u mean not a long-term solution?
well its not physically soldered together so bits can fall out etc. For something permenant u want it soldered, possibly stripboard. You can get stripboard that looks like breadboard, so u can prototype on breadboard and transfer to stripboard...
ya I found some stripboard info but Im trying to find somthing small I can buy. I would like to find somthing around 1"x1" stripboard for cheap, around $.50 or cheaper if possable.
Also is a stripboard made out of PCB?
PCB is not a material it stands for Printed Circuit Board. A PCB is usualy plastic with coper tracks etched on it.
A stripboard is usualy plastic with rows of copper connecting the rows a gird of holes.
A stripboard is a PCB substitute in effect.
sorry I was thinking PVC.....I was asking cause I cant use the laser on PVC as it would basicly be vary bad fume wise
ya laser for laser etching and cutting through plex
why would you use a laser to cut strip board, if it is PVC wont a dremel or a hacksaw be just as good?
laser is easy and fun ....and no mess
ok I went to ratshack and got 3 different Capacitors, cause I didnt know what ones to get......I got a "Ceramic Disc Capacitor-2kVDC max", "Polyester Film Cap-50WVDC max", and a "Ceramic Disc Cap-500WVDC"....what one do I use or does it matter...thanks
The value of the capacitors would be helpful.
sorry there all 0.01
Any of those should work.
