How much breadboard is too much breadboard?
After implementing a high bandwidth signal between two Props, I started getting some nondeterministic behavior with my setup consisting of 3 separate interconnected breadboards - video dropping out, props resetting, etc.
At this point I have to conclude that the parasitic inductance caused by the dozens of large signal loops (combined with the breadboard's notoriously poor noise and high frequency handling) is the culprit.
But what other options are there for clean, rapid, plug and play prototyping? Vector and perf boards all require time consuming and messy soldering or wire wrapping etc.
Fun fact: your smartphone's high speed video mode is an excellent tool for debugging video issues which only occur during periods of movement. But now I'm out of storage space...
