until you snap the big metal conductor and breaking one of those smd or pin.

Yeah, that looks very fragile, Psi. Looks more like a sort of "freeform circuit art" than a prototyping method.

I'm a huge fan of dead bug prototypes. Show me another way that minimizes parasitics as easily without etching a PCB. I do them just like the photos in Linear AN47 (Jim Williams), with connectors soldered right to the board and such.

Don't know what to call it, but I like the workmanship. Nicely done.  :)

oh, i didn't make that. I just used google image search to find an example of what i meant.

I don't think it has a name. Maybe we could call it, 'Squashed bug' style

Manhattan/deadbug/airwire style has one disadvantage: when you glue the IC upside down, you cannot see the orientation marks :)

I also had quite large number of "Bzzzzt... Fook, datasheet pinout diagram is from top view, not bottom" moments.
I love the smell of FR4 in the morning!

I've always wondered, what are the implications (if any) of potting an aluminium electrolytic capacitor in epoxy?
