Making Your Circuits Permanent
Most of the circuits you have made so far were built using a breadboard. Creating circuits on a breadboard is particularly useful when you’re designing a new circuit, as it allows for easy modifications to the design and reuse of the components. It does not work so well for permanent circuits, as components and wires can get accidentally pulled out of the breadboard. In this chapter you will look at how you can make your circuits permanent so that they can survive a reasonable amount of use without the wires falling out. This configuration will also allow you to use components that cannot be connected directly to a breadboard or components that need header pins to be soldered on before they can be connected to a breadboard.
