Questions tagged [stripboard]

Stripboard is a popular type of electronics prototyping board with a 0.1 inch (2.54 mm) grid of holes, connected by strips of copper running in one direction all the way across one side of the board. It is also known by the name Veroboard, which is a trademark of British company Vero Technologies Ltd.
