The 'Wiring Pen' Circuit Construction Technique

This description covers use of the prototyping system, known as the 'enamel wiring pen' technique (EWP). The aim is to show in detail how it may be used to construct digital logic circuits and to compare the technique with others commonly used, principally wire-wrap (WW). You can view a photo of components on a board made using this technique and another showing the reverse or wiring side of it.

Comparison with other techniques

What advantages and disadvantages does the the EWP method have relative to the WW or Printed Circuit (PCB) alternatives?
