Those boards are single pad per hole and are through-hole plated. That allows you to have components on one side and connections/wires on the other with easy soldering of either. John

Yup, those are very much like the ones I use, and they're very nice to work with. The thru-holes are much more robust than the old brown boards without plated thru-holes.

Components could go on both sides, but I admit never using one that way - too hard to design. I put components on one side and most of my interconnects on the opposite side. A few wires on either.

Depending on the board you get, I have a very nice drawing template already to use.

the browns are better imo, u can remove components again and break them into pieces.
