Experiment 1- Breadboard Basics Results (Multimeter set to the lowest setting (200) for all measurements) 1. Resistance within one row of the power bus: .4 Ohms 2. Resistance between vertically separated rows of power busses: Overflow 3. Resistance between horizontally separated rows of the power bus: .4 Ohms 4. Resistance within one column of the device working area: .4 Ohms 5. Resistance between vertically separated columns in the working area: Overflow 6. Resistance between horizontally separated columns in the working area: Overflow 7. Resistance between rows and columns: Overflow Conclusions Based on these test results, it is easy to see the general layout of the breadboard. All of the results that I obtained were as I had expected. Overflow results were obtained when trying to measure the resistance between two points that are not connected. The same result (.4 Ohms) was obtained for the all of the measurements taken between two

Unformatted text preview: points in the board that were connected. Looking at the results, as well as the board’s layout, I can see the rows and columns are that connected. Top two and bottom two rows of the breadboard are the power busses, and they are connected horizontally. The ten rows in between the power busses are connected vertically. The top five rows of the working area are connected vertically, as are the bottom five. The gap in between the two is where they disconnect. The resistance test results show me that the general layout of the board is actually very simple. Final Thoughts/Comments This lab exercise took me about half an hour to perform the actual tests. It was a fairly simple lab, with very good instructions. I cannot think of any ways to significantly improve this lab. The picture of the breadboard, Figure 3, was especially helpful in the completion of this lab....
