Once you have your circuit fully working on breadboards, transfer it to a permanent prototyping board.
Here are a couple of examples:
(can stack on a Pi with 26 pin stacking connector)
(can stack on a Pi with a 40 pin stacking connector)

Project: I would like the RPi to control 5 LED strips, plus 1-2 motion sensors. Each LED strip needs 3 MOSFETs, which means 15 GPIO pins, plus 2 sensors.
Progress so far: Using a breadboard, I have prototyped one of the LED strips with the MOSFETs. I used thermostat wire so that the RPi stays in a central location, but the LED strip is in the room of one of my children.
Challenge: I would like to graduate from a breadboard to a circuit board. I can see myself needing a lot of room on the circuit board so I don't quite know how to get organized.
(1) Is a ribbon cable, connected to a T-Cobbler, and then soldered to a circuit board the only way to join the RPi to the circuit board? I get that using jumper cable is a no-go and that I need a more permanent solution.
(2) Is the T-Cobbler soldered onto the circuit board?
thanks for any tips...
