Question Prototypes...

Hi all !

I am just curious of how you build/test your prototypes ?
I think creating PCBs just for testing is a little... off !

That's how my prototypes look:

That looks like finished product compared to my
prototypes.

Hmm, are you using free-air wiring ?

I do not bother with prototypes much these days. I design in Electronic Workbench on the pc and then do the circuit board layout in CAD (Eagle). I then make the pcb using a pcb pen in a computer plotter.

I like to make a wire wrap prototype using proto board. Very clean and easy to debug...also gives you an ok idea for final component placment on the pcb.

I barely even use any wire for mine since if I could clip all leads to nothing and butt components up to each other I would. I never get time to make PC's since the circuits go through continual evolution, with more things to try than I ever have time to get to doing. I am not too incilned to show off any of my asseblies which may be one reason why I don't have a camera. I have been seeing some good pictures here.

Nelson, help me with this? I have a hard time with 4 dimensions. Hypercubes are my limit. ;-)
