Breadboard/Prototyping PCB Options
PRL-980 Series PCB Options
The PRL Breadboarding and Prototyping PCBs have special features for building high-performance circuits. There are two general PCB pad configurations available.
The "isolated pad" configuration provides an easy way to connect any pin to the ground plane via a solder bridge or jumper wire.
All PRL breadboarding and prototyping kits use the "isolated pad" configuration, except for those that use the "3-pads-per-pin" configuration described below.
Isolated Pad Pattern
The "3-pads-per-pin" configuration provides a quick and easy way to make up to two circuit connections to each device pin with a stick-pin or wire.
Each triple pad is also adjacent to the ground plane and power bus.
