Stripboard (usually known by the trademark name Veroboard of the British Vero Electronics company, who invented it) is a type of electronics prototyping board characterised by a 0. Electronics refers to the flow of charge (moving Electrons through Nonmetal conductors (mainly Semiconductors, whereas electrical 1 inch (2. 54 mm) regular grid of holes, with wide strips running one way all the way along one side of the board. Breaks are inserted in the tracks, usually around a hole. With care, it is possible to break between holes to allow for components that have two pin rows only one position apart such as twin row headers for IDCs. An insulation displacement connector or Insulation piercing connector is a connector that pierces the insulation on a Wire to make the connection removing the need It is probably the widest used electronics prototyping system in the world.
Veroboard is made using printed circuit board techniques generally with synthetic-resin-bonded paper (SRBP) as the base board type. A printed circuit board, or PCB, is used to mechanically support and electrically connect Electronic components using conductive pathways or traces FR-2 is an abbreviation for Flame Resistant 2. It is a NEMA designation for synthetic resin bonded paper, a Composite material made of The 0. 1 inch (2. 54 mm) spacing allows sockets for DIP ICs (or the ICs directly), some standard types of connector and other devices with pins on a 0. In Microelectronics, a dual in-line package (DIP, sometimes called a DIL package is an electronic device package with a rectangular housing and two parallel rows Microchipsjpg|right|thumb|200px|Microchips ( EPROM memory with a transparent window showing the integrated circuit inside 1 inch spacing to be directly mounted without any gap between them and the board. The components are usually placed on the plain side of the board, with their leads protruding through the holes. The leads are then soldered to the copper tracks on the other side of the board to make the desired connections, and any excess wire is cut off. A solder is a fusible metal Alloy with a melting point or melting range of 90 to 450 ° C (200 to 840 ° F) used in a process called The continuous tracks may be easily and neatly cut as desired to form breaks between conductors using a 5 mm twist drill, a hand cutter made for the purpose, or a knife. A drill (from Dutch Drillen) is Tracks may be linked up on either side of the board using either insulated or uninsulated lengths of wire (though, if using uninsulated wire on the back, care is needed to avoid short circuits). Short Circuit is a 1986 comedy Science fiction film starring Ally Sheedy and Steve Guttenberg and directed by With practice, very neat and reliable assemblies can be created, though such a method is labour-intensive and therefore unsuitable for production assemblies.
External wire connections to the board are made either by soldering the wires through the holes or, for wires too thick to pass through the holes, by soldering them to specially made pins called Veropins which fit tightly into the holes. Alternatively some types of connector have a suitable pin spacing to be inserted directly into the board.
A larger version using a 0. 15 inch (3. 81 mm) grid and larger holes is also available, but is generally less popular (presumably because it doesn't match up with standard IC pin spacing). Veroboard is not designed for surface-mount components. Surface-mount technology ( SMT) is a method for constructing electronic circuits in which the components (SMC or Surface Mounted Components are mounted directly onto For high density prototyping, especially of digital circuits, wire wrap is faster and more reliable than Veroboard.

Veroboard is similar in concept and usage to breadboard, but is cheaper and more permanent—connections are soldered and while some limited reuse may be possible, more than a few cycles of soldering and desoldering are likely to render both the components and the board unusable. A breadboard ( solderless breadboard, protoboard, plugboard) is a reusable Solderless device used to build a (generally temporary Prototype In contrast, breadboard connections are held by friction, and the breadboard can be reused many times. However, breadboard is not very suitable for prototyping that needs to remain in a set configuration for an appreciable period of time nor for physical mock-ups containing a working circuit or for any environment subject to vibration or movement.
A related product is called perfboard (short for perforated board). Perfboard is a base for prototyping Circuit boards It has holes pre-drilled at set intervals across a grid This is like a Veroboard but without the copper strips and is also used for electrical prototyping, generally with techniques such as wire wrapping or a wiring pencil. A wiring pencil (often sold under the trade names of road runner and verowire) is a tool for making electrical connections Another variant is called TriPad board. This is similar to stripboard, except that the conductive tracks do not run continuously along the board but are broken into sections, each of which spans three holes. This allows the legs of two or three components to be easily linked together in the circuit conveniently without the need for track breaks to be made. However, in order to link more than three holes together, wire links or bridges must be formed and this can result in a less compact layout than is possible with ordinary stripboard.
