@alunh_1: I guess the Bob Pease approach would not make you happy: See http://www.rfcafe.com/references/electrical/bob-pease-breadboard.htm

Let's put it this way, which design would you prefer to debug -- mine or Bob's? LOL

@Duane: I try, as much as possible, to put symmetry in my PCBs.

Yes! That's what I'm talking about -- you don;t havwe to spend time doing tyhis -- but you choose top because it makes uyou more "satisfied" with the final product -- right?

Have you seen Fritzing? Fritzing is this free program for converting breadboarding into PCBs and schematics.

I try, as much as possible, to put symmetry in my PCBs. I try to keep trace spacing the same and even put parts consistently oriented. It's not always possible, but I always seem to at least try to do it that way. It is kind of an obsession.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
