prototyping board and placement of the component
« on: September 29, 2009, 03:52:35 AM »
Hi, this is my first time here^^. I am a mechanical student of year 1 semester 1.Glad to meet you all :)  I love robot ever since i watch the gundum series when i was young. haha  :D
I have some simple question (which actually i really dont know.....) concerning the connection of the electronic component in the prototyping board

1. How do i connect the component to the prototyping board? I mean the connection of the component, not about soldering :D (Is it also has the regulation of placing of the electronic component like the bread board did? And how?)

2. When i read the $50 robot tutorial, I does not understand why we need to connect 2 pin parallel together, but some of them only need to solder them individually. what does the power bus means?

3. Finally, how do i ground the component in the prototyping board? Is there also have some regulations?

Before i read the $50 robot tutorial, i was clueless to build a robot. It is a great tutorial for a absolute beginner :) Thanks for that, admin :)

Hi,

1. How do i connect the component to the prototyping board? I mean the connection of the component, not about soldering :D (Is it also has the regulation of placing of the electronic component like the bread board did? And how?)
On a solderless breadboard, you just poke the components into the (right) holes.
If you want a voltage regulator for it, consider building a small circuit to go on the banana plugs (if the breadboard has got them).


2. When i read the $50 robot tutorial, I does not understand why we need to connect 2 pin parallel together, but some of them only need to solder them individually. what does the power bus means?
A bus (in this respect) is nothing but a wire or similar and a power bus is a wire conducting power (that's the simple explanation).


3. Finally, how do i ground the component in the prototyping board? Is there also have some regulations?
You make a connection to the ground line (or the 0V line in single supply circuits).
No regulation on the ground.

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
Please remember...
Engineering is based on numbers - not adjectives

            I am really lucky this day. I never thought that I am going to see the answer of my problem in this thread about prototyping. I experience the same as LemonSkin  and I also tried  Soeren just said.
