I'm interested in getting into experimenting with wire wrapping for some small microcontroller projects using some Arduino Nanos.
I've watched a bunch of videos online, but something that is not explained is – how do you handle power and ground when wire wrapping?
Do you chain all your pins that use power or ground point-to-point? Or do you create some sort of bus that runs near certain components that you tie into?
I found this image: in a Hack-a-Day post by Bil Herd which shows some designs he wrapped. I noticed the thick black wires that run along the board, which I believe are for power. On the opposite side of the board, he appears to have a bare-wire ground wire:
This looks handy – but I'm not sure how you tie into those wires since you can't wrap onto them. It's not clear to me from the picture as to how they connect to the wire wrap pins. I believe the T-bits that go from the ground on top of the board to the bottom are soldered.
I had a thought of taking some male headers that have wire-wrap length pins on both sides of the plastic bit in the middle and just wrapping all of the pins on one side together to make a ground or power strip.
