There are three different types of breadboard:

  1. Full

  2. Half

  3. Mini

These breadboard varies in sizes and there may be variance in rows and column but the general principle of all the breadboards are same

Although the main difference is size but also there are different shapes and color too available in the breadboard.

How is breadboard constructed ?

When you will see the breadboard you will find that there are many tiny holes in the breadboard.

For better understanding let us divide the breadboard in different sections: 

1.Bus strip and Terminal strip

A breadboard consists of two areas called strips, and are separated from the middle portion called as DIP support.

Bus strips are used for power supply connections

Terminal strips are mainly used for placing electrical components. In this each strip consist of 5 pinholes, indicating that you only can connect up to 5 components in one particular section.

2. Internal connection of pin holes in breadboard.

As you can see in the above image, the orange strip is indicating that how the tiny holes are connected.

In the bus strip the holes are connected horizontally  and in terminal strip the holes are connected vertically.

3. Metal clips

There are metal clips inside the breadboard which is used to grab the electronic components whenever it is plugged into the terminal and bus strip pinholes.
