bread′board′ing n.


1. (Cookery) a wooden board on which dough is kneaded or bread is sliced
2. (Electrical Engineering) an experimental arrangement of electronic circuits giving access to components so that modifications can be carried out easily


(ˈbrɛdˌbɔrd, -ˌboʊrd)

1. a board on which dough is kneaded or bread is sliced.
2. a circuit board on which electronic components can be easily rearranged or replaced for preliminary design or testing.


A board ranging in size from about 15?20 inches to about 20?30 inches. It was usually stored like a drawer in the kitchen cabinet and was used as a small table on which to knead bread and roll out pie dough.

We had to make sure the power rails on all three breadboards were a perfect match, particularly since only the first half of the circuit needed a +/-12v supply whilst the rest only required +12v, and use basic wires to connect all the rails together.
The other uses a PropStick USB, a module similar to a BASIC Stamp in that the Propeller processor, EEPROM, voltage regulator and timing crystal are built onto a small PCB that fits into the breadboard.

The third team thought that this approach was inefficient and that a fresh breadboard should be developed using miniature COTS electronic components.
The BoC system that Altium showed at Programmable World included mixed schematic/VHDL design capture, integrated software development; schematic component libraries with a range of pre-synthesized components, primitives and macro libraries for all Xilinx and Altera device families; "virtual" instruments such as logic analyzers and frequency counters that can be built into the design for test purposes; and a BoC development board loaded with an FPGA that functions as a breadboard and permits implementation of the design directly from the engineer's PC onto the FPGA.
