NOTE: I’m not an expert on the best ways to utilize Dupont connectors; I’m just sharing what has worked for me.
One of the more frustrating things for me as an “electronics beginner” was the problem of making dependable connections between separate devices at the circuit level.
Prototyping on a solder-less breadboard is a breeze with purpose-made jumper wires, even though it can get to be a little confusing…
…and it’s fairly easy to create custom breadboard wires when the time is right:
You might even say that soldering up a permanent version of a circuit on perfboard or a PCB isn’t all that difficult:
But how do you deal with connections to devices or components that aren’t on the same board? Some kind of standardized connector would sure be nice. Enter …
