ECE 331 rev: S09 Protoboard Guide: An Introduction to the ECE331 Protoboard A board designed to insert DIP (dual inline package) circuits and other electronic components and to connect them using wires is called a protoboard . A protoboard has one or more notches running across the board where DIP circuits are plugged in. The wire insertion points on either side of the notch are connected together to form nodes for connecting components using wires. Figure 1 shows the connectivity of a typical protoboard. Protoboards also typically have one or more “power rails” that are electrically connected and run perpendicular to component wiring nodes; these are intended to be wired to power supply nodes and provide power supply connection points across the protoboard. Figure 1 shows the top portion of the ECE331 protoboard. It has 4 vertically connected “power rails” (2 on each side and 4 down the middle), 2 components notches, and 5 horizontally connected insertion points along each side of the component notches. The
