Soldering Components on a Stripboard
A stripboard is a circuit board with holes and printed strips of metal. These boards are a good way of connecting simple to medium complicated circuits. Beginners are highly recommended to use stripboards in the beginning because you can control your connections and relatively easy to fix errors.
Soldering components on a stripboard: On the back side of the stripboard you can see several strips of metal which connect the holes either vertically or horizontally. Firstly, place all the components on the stripboard according to the schematic. Try to use the connections already on the stripboard as much as possible. Always think through where you want to place the components before you start soldering. After placing a component, bend its leads to make it stay in place when you turn the stripboard around to solder. Solder all the components to the stripboard and make sure you have good solder joints all over.
You can build all kinds of circuits! But a circuit with many connections can become a real hassle when you are trying to figure out which wire goes to where. You can first make sure all the connections are correct on your computer, then do it as per your schematic.
