Hi,

I got my marvellous application working fine on my breadboard ;-)
It's around 25 TTL LS type ICs, plus few connectors strip and 5V PS.
It's not an high freq application ....

Now I need to transfert all that stuff on something but I never did that
before (I will need 2 boards)...

What should I use ?
I was thiking wirewrap, (is it still a good solution ?)

Any suggestion ?


:)

Oopps sorry abou the wrong date for the last message :-(

Wirewrap would work. The OKI WSU-30M manual tool is fine. I'd recommend
getting a pack or two of pre-stripped wire; makes things go a lot faster
if you're not having to stop to cut and strip.
Any suggestion ?

Also look at prototype boards like these from Jameco (also at lots of
other places like Digikey, even Radio Shack):
http://www.jameco.com/Jameco/catalogs/c254/P272.pdf. The "three hole
pad" setup is handy for 300-mil IC spacing.

You can buy prefab pcbs that have the same layout as solderless
breadboards. If you get some of those, you can just transfer the design
over a bit at a time. Make sure you test the individual boards as you
build them, and keep your prototype up and running as a debugging aid (ie,
don't tear it apart as you build the new one.)

You can also use a PCB layout program like 'eagle', and design a PCB for
it. It is easy, and amazingly cheap.

Strange as it may seem, the power of mathematics rests on its evasion of all
unnecessary thought, and on its wonderful saving of mental operations.
