    Hi

    I have a couple of devices that have prototyping areas.

    I have a low pin demo pickit board

    I just wondered what wires people used.

    The holes are a bit too big for my usual wires that push into a breadboard (the sheathed coloured ones)

    Thanks

    You need to solder those boards, the idea is that you solder components to the board and solder wires to the pads/component legs.

    You could buy a small plug-in style breadboard like this;

    And just stick it to your PCB with some double sided padded adhesive tape. I think it might fit.

    You can buy these "tiny breadboards for electronics" anywhere, a google search shows zillions of sellers.

    If using soldered module boards I would suggest strip boards, http://www.futurlec.com/Protoboards.shtml
    Half way down the page.
    Interconnect by the leads in the ebay link I posted or use IDC ribbon.
