Breadboards are the most common platform for learning and building circuits of all size, but can impact the longevity of your test setup if they are integrated permanently into a test device. The Breadboard Canvas is a replaceable physical interface for the Analog Discovery Studio centered around a large breadboardable area. In a lab setting or at home where the Analog Discovery Studio will get lots use with multiple projects, the Breadboard Canvases can be easily replaced or swapped out for multiple projects via the magnetic interface. This provides a convenient way to demonstrate multiple projects without having to disassemble circuits or share the device between multiple students where they each have their own Canvas. If the breadboard, integrated switches buttons or LEDs get damaged, the Canvas can quickly and easily be replaced protecting the long term investment in the Analog Discovery Studio.
The Breadboard Canvas features a large breadboardable surface with two regular sized solderless breadboards appropriate for medium to large circuits. Two small breadboards provide connection to the six available power supplies (3.3V, 5V, ±12V, and ± variable), and connections to the included I/O. Two switches, LEDs, and buttons have been included on the Breadboard Canvas to provide these typically hard to breadboard components with an easy-to-use interface. Each of the power supplies can be switched on and off via slide switches to make powering off and on circuits as convenient as possible. Power supply status is indicated by the power indicator LEDs. This is the same Breadboard Canvas that is included with the Analog Discovery Studio.
For more permanent circuits or prototyping, the Blank Canvas provides similar but paired down features in the style of a protoboard.
