EEVblog #568 – Solderless Breadboard Capacitance

What is the actual capacitance of typical breadboard contacts?
It’s not in the datasheet, so Dave decides to measure it.
It is well know that breadboards are not suitable for high frequency work due to the stray capacitance between contacts, but how bad is it really?
