Placing the 6 pin header in the $50 bot
« on: December 04, 2009, 12:11:32 PM »
How can I achieve this when using a breadboard? I only have rows with 5 holes. Do I need wires to do so? Is it bad if I connect them both horizontal and vertical?

I'm pretty confused now.

Thanks for the response.

But the two rows of six don't have to be next to each other, right? Cause if they do then I think I can only connect them so they they are all 12 connected to each other. I'm really noob though so I'm not too sure.  ???

also I'd like to ask if you need a DIP Socket when using a breadboard.  ???

Ah and is it bad when the 2 5-Pin headers where the programmer needs to be connected are connected? Like in sets of 2? Because It's hard to make them in my bread board like they are in the schematic. =(

I'm trying to make the circuit in a breadboard but I keep getting difficulties like this. =(

Hi,

Apart from the short-circuits you'd make, jamming pin headers into a solderless breadboard are gonna ruin the board.

You could get a small piece of Vero board (hole matrix board) and solder the pinheader is and then solder non-stranded connection wires to each pin and then connect it up to the breadboard that way.
