Product overview

  • Connect a variety of components without the need of soldering
  • Interconnected rows and blocks
  • Standard DIP sockets
  • maximum wire supported 20 - 30 SWG (0.3 - 0.8 mm)

A range of solderless breadboard modules that can interconnect to suit individual requirements. The basic board AD-01 consists of four blocks of six columns of 28 rows, the sockets in each row being interconnected. The blocks are a standard DIP size apart, although MSI and LSI type chips can be used. At both ends of the blocks, there are two power busses. The ‘Red’ bus is made up of two separate rows of 12 connecting sockets, and the ‘Black’ bus is one row of 24 connecting sockets

There is an additional matrix of 30 by 6 sockets for non-dip type components. The six sockets in the vertical plane are interconnected. Each socket will accept solid wire from 20 to 30 swg (0•3 to 0•8mm). The base has a ‘sticky’ covering to hold the board firm on a workbench or surface.

AD-01 is 117 x 80mm

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality I have a couple of these and have been using them for a few years. They seem pretty durable. The only warning I would give is that the orientation of the bus rails is different from most breadboarding diagrams on the web...not so easy for those new to breadboarding

The middle picture shows banana sockets in the package. Does this item come with those?

Hi, I'm a bit of a beginner here. Was recently in one of your stores but nobody could explain to me how the various holes in the breadboard are connected. I realise that jumper leads are needed but how are the rows/columns connected? Thanks.
