Description: Description: This is your tried and true full size solderless breadboard! It has 2 power buses, 10 columns, and 63 rows - with a total of 830 tie in points. All pins are spaced by a standard 0.1". The two sets of five columns are separated by about 0.3", perfect for straddling a DIP package over. The board accepts wire sizes in the range of 20-29AWG.
This board also has a self-adhesive on the back. The boards also have interlocking parts, so you can hook as many together as you’d like.
Dimensions: 6.5 x 2.1 x 0.38" (165.1 x 54.29 x 9.68mm)

This breadboard works well for what I need. I am trying out different microcontrollers and, of course, breadboarding them. I connect breadboard-friendly MCU’s to a set of test LED’s which are installed on the breadboard. Each half of the breadboard can be fed different voltages on the power rails. The holes in the breadboard are a little tough to use at first but they work. Overall, they represent an excellent price point. I wish they were shipped in thin sandwich bags because that would save on packaging waste.
Happily, these boards seem to perform better (less insertion force) for me than the more expensive 3M breadboards I’ve used. Also, at this price I can leave the board in my project rather than reusing it.
Note: like most breadboards, these boards don’t have a ground plane, which hasn’t been a problem for my projects so far.
Nice board. I purchased it for experimenting with a small PSoC evaluation kit. It serves this function okay, but I wish there was a version where the center aisle was wider. With this board you really only have access to two pins on one side and one pin on the other. It would be nice to have access to all four pins on each side.
I’ll keep looking; in the meantime this board will suffice. It does work perfectly for DIP devices though which wouldn’t be easy or possible with a board that had a wider aisle. Two half-size boards; one with a wide aisle and the other with the standard width paired together would be perfect–best of both worlds.
