This stripboard has parallel copper strips on one side and has 0.40" diameter holes spaced on 0.10" centers to accept common component leads. Two larger strips run full length on the sides of the board that can be used for power. Traces are printed on the opposite side to aid in keeping track of where the opposite side copper traces are located.
The strips run the full length of the board, and can be cut using an Xacto knife like our P/N 10260 . You can also cut a trace by twirling a drill bit at a hole location. It's easier on your hands if you make a simple "stripboard tool" by mounting a 9/64" or 5/32" drill bit into a sewing thread spool, which is used as a grip handle for the drill bit.
These are handy for prototyping and may be cut with sheet metal shheer, hack saw etc. to make smaller boards. The board is xxp phenolic material.
Can be used with straight inline header pins 70-4840 or right angle inline header pins 70-5840 for stacking or connecting to multiple boards - popular for Arduino, Rasberry Pi, PicAxe, and other microcontrollers.
