Experiment 2: Equipment and Instruments in the Lab A. Breadboard The breadboard is a plastic perforated board on which you will build your circuits. The breadboard has many strips of metal (usually copper), which run underneath the board. The metal strips are laid out as shown in the figure below. The metal strips connect the holes on the top of the board. This makes it easy to connect components together to build circuits. To use the breadboard, the legs of components are placed in the holes (the sockets). The holes are made so that they will hold the component in place. Each hole is connected to one of the metal strips running underneath the board. Each wire forms a node . A node is a point in a circuit where two components are connected. Connections between different components are formed by putting their legs in a common node. On the breadboard, a node is the row of holes that are connected by the strip of metal underneath. Note The long top and bottom row of holes are usually used for power supply connections. The rest of the circuit is built by placing components and connecting them together with jumper wires.
