Breadboard jumper wires are insulated electrical wires with bare ends, stripped of insulation. They are used to connect the components of a breadboard or circuit, either internally or together as a cable with other components. When you use jumper wires you dont need to use solder.
Breadboard jumper wires are used in electronics and in computing. Theyre typically cables that are used to set up or configure printed circuit boards (PCBs), such as the motherboards of computers. Individual wires or cables are fitted by inserting their end connectors into the relevant slots.
There are six different types of wires. Two of the most commonly used types are:
There are several types of jumper wire kits to suit a range of applications. These kits have an assortment of wires, in different mm lengths and pre-sorted colours making them easy to find dependent on the needs of your project. Most of these kits are used for testing and prototyping electrical circuits.
