Breadboarding

Assembling an electronic circuit in the most convenient manner on a board or other flat surface, without regard for final locations of components, to prove the feasibility of the circuit and to facilitate changes when necessary. Standard breadboards for experimental work are made with mounting holes and terminals closely spaced at regular intervals, so that parts can be mounted and connected without drilling additional holes.

Printed-circuit boards having similar patterns of punched holes, with various combinations of holes connected together by printed wiring on each side, are often used for breadboarding when the final version is to be a printed circuit. See Printed circuit
