Fun with Arduino - Arduino on a Proto-Board

Make it Permanent

Congratulations! Your new Arduino project is fully programmed and functional. In fact, it is so good you want to use it for years to come. It's time to take the circuit off the breadboard and make a permanent version.

In the previous installments of this series, we learned how to built a Stand-Alone Arduino on a breadbord. We then learned how to program this circuit using an Arduino board as a In System Programmer.

Now comes the final step. Making a soldered, permanent version that will stand the test of time. There are numerous ways to accomplish this, but the easiest by far is to use a Proto-Board PCB that matches the layout of your breadboard.

There are many Proto-Boards on the market that will fit the bill, but Adafruit have recently released the 'Cadillac of boards' with their Perma-Proto Breadboard PCB.

Check out the video for all the details.


  1. Hi Dave! I Have a doubt on how exactly could solder this on my board. Ihave this one on the link. since it doesnt have that middle spacing, is it be an issue?
    Also, since it only has one "slot" on each outer lines, could I just solder a bride to connect to them?

  2. Sorry for not being able to make the image appear.. the link is to my google search on "placa perfurada" which is the board i found, here in Brasil.

  3. I am learning so much from you! thank you a lot Mr.D Notesand volts.

  4. My project uses 5v and 3.3v. Does this set up provide both voltages?

  5. I’d have to check with you here. Which is not something I usually do! I enjoy reading a post that will make people think. Also, thanks for allowing me to comment!
