The 3 most popular Breadboard friendly breakouts

What is a breakout board and how does it work?

A breakout board is a compact circuit board that provides access to the pins of a microcontroller or integrated circuit. The main purpose of a breakout board is to make it easier to connect these small and densely packed components to other components, such as sensors, actuators, or other circuits. The board breaks out the pins of the component and provides them as separate, accessible connections, typically through headers. This allows you to quickly and easily experiment with different configurations and test your circuits without having to worry about making direct connections to the component itself.

How do I connect a breakout board to a breadboard?

To connect a breakout board to a breadboard, you typically use jumper wires. Or attached to the breakout directly to the breadboard using (angled) male headers.

What kind of components are available on a breakout board?

A breakout board allows you to connect various types of components to a breadboard or PCB, including sensors, actuators and other integrated circuits. Some common components that can be connected to a breakout board include:

  • Sensors: temperature, light, motion, sound, humidity, etc.
  • Actuators: motors, relays, LEDs, buzzers, etc.
  • Integrated circuits: microcontrollers, amplifiers, analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), digital-to-analog converters (DACs), etc.

Can I use multiple breakout boards on a single breadboard?

Yes, you can use multiple breakout boards on a single breadboard. This can be useful when you need to connect multiple components, or when you want to build a more complex circuit. To use multiple breakout boards on a single breadboard, you simply connect each breakout board to the breadboard using the same process as if you were using just one. Then, use jumper wires to connect the different breakout boards to each other, or to other components in your circuit, as needed. It's important to make sure that the voltage levels and signal paths between the breakout boards and other components are properly matched to avoid any damage or compatibility issues. You should also ensure that the power requirements of the components are within the limits of your power supply.
