Best buddies to change your cable gender

1Habitually we see the changes in the standardization of Audio/Video/Data communication ports on the development boards and the monitor displays, The older standards like VGA, DVI and their variants are being ruled out and replaced by HDMI and DisplayPort (including its variants; HDMI-Mini, HDMI-Micro), but still there are plenty of peripherals with the older ports, however, and finding the correct adapter to suit your needs can be tricky.


Sanatana Techtronics offers a variety of adapters for connecting different peripherals. If you are looking to find the right adapters to change your cable genders, land into a link below. 


5These fully plug and play method has gained a great deal of popularity and is a relatively inexpensive option. If you have any queries write us a mail at, For more updates on products stay tuned to

Way to fix a broken IC pin



It is not a good practice to remove an IC from its socket with our hands, It may cause the pins to bend or break; as shown below

Broken IC

with little experience of soldering, you can reuse the IC !!!

IC 8

I have followed these steps to fix it, First i have straightened the bent legs with the help of tweezers as shown.

IC 2     IC 3

What if you don’t have the broken IC pin?, you can cut-down the LED/capacitor/Diode/Damaged-IC legs or a piece of copper to solder it. Prefer the one which sits strong into the IC base. I got a scrap IC base and legs looks similar to the IC pins so removed one of the leg to use it.

IC 5

removed one IC base leg with the help of tweezers

IC 6

IC 7

trimmed it with the help of cutter

Sometimes you may not get more support area to solder, in that case you carve the plastic around the broken pin with a sharp knife

IC 9

IC 10

soldered to the broken leg

Hurray!!! its fixed and reused for application.

Don’t solder a pin for a long time, IC get overheated and may get burnt.
If you feel the joint is not getting soldered, then try applying some flux.
You can use any other sophisticated tools if available or a screwdriver to pluck the ICs.

How to use breadboard

Breadboard is a piece of hardware prototype stage for designing and building electronic devices. It allows you to build an electronic circuit without any soldering  instead, you poke your components and wires into the small contact holes arranged in rows and column connected by lines of metal, then you can connect your components together with single strand wires or breadboarding wires to form your circuit.

prototype stage for designing and building electronic devices

This is how the holes are interconnected electrically.Breadboard

  • Electrical connection remains same for the (1), (4) and (2), (3).
  • In (1), (4) rows are linked horizontally.
  • In (2), (3) columns are linked vertically.
  • There is no interconnection between (1), (4).
  • There is interconnection between the rows in (1), (4).
  • There is no interconnection between the columns in (2), (3).
  • There is no interconnection between (2), (3).
  • Usually (1), (4) is used for power supply connections as we find many supply points in the circuits.


If you want to make use of the entire row you need to short a jumper wire as shown in the figure belowBreadboard

Example Application: 



  • Current and voltage limits – 100mA, 50V.
  • Contact wear-out – While building circuits make sure the wire pokes into the holes strongly.
