I have a prototype board like this one: here

Note that mine does not have the arrows/numbers on the side. Looks like a cutout from the middle section.

It only has golden circles on top. So far I'm used to using a prototype breadboard like this one:


I have an Particle Photon board. I assume i put it's pins from the other side but how do I than wire from there. For instance I have few other controllers which should all ground to the Particle Photon GND. How do I wire them to my GND pin ?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Wire-wrap to the rescue! ...or far less cool, but way more piratical (practical), solder point-to-point using wires. 1950 tech? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wire_wrap \$\endgroup\$ May 5 '20 at 19:20

Here my work enter image description here

  1. For short distance, use point to point soldering (use resister lead as base)
  2. For long connect use wire soldering
  3. for jumper you can use 0 Ohm resister
  4. For other module use male or female pin header
