Using Proto-Chip is EASY! YOU can use MANY different devices, and connect them how YOU want them arranged for a proper layout. Design it the way YOU want, before soldering parts on PCB. When satisfied with YOUR layout, solder them down and cut away traces not needed in circuit and add jumper wires to other parts of PCB. Make your circuit in less time, and less hassle!!
Thank you for making us THE BEST Surface Mount Device Designers Board Choice!
