2. jumper wire / jumper cable
Wire connectors could be male or
A male connector is commonly referred
to as a plug and has a solid pin for a
A female connector is commonly
referred to as a jack and has a center
conductor with a hole in it to accept the
4. jumper wire / jumper cable
Jumper wires typically come in three
The difference between each is in the end
point of the wire.
Male ends have a pin protruding and can
plug into things, while female ends do not
and are used to plug things into.
Male-to-male jumper wires are the most
common and what you likely will use most
6. A jumper wire is a conducting wire used to transfer electrical signals between two points in a circuit.
A jump wire (also known as jumper, jumper wire, jumper cable,
DuPont wire or cable) is an electrical wire, or group of them in a cable, with a
connector or pin at each end (or sometimes without them – simply "tinned").
In breadboards, jump wires are used to establish connections between the central micro controller
and other devices such as buttons and sensors.
- jumper wires come in a variety of colors, the colors don’t actually mean
This means that a red jumper wire is technically the same as a black one.
But the colors can be used to your advantage in order to differentiate between
types of connections, such as ground or power.
jumper wires are simply wires that have connector pins at each end, allowing them
to be used to connect two points to each other without soldering.
Jumper wires are typically used with breadboards and other prototyping tools in
order to make it easy to change a circuit as needed.

10. How to Make Jumper Wires
A jumper wire is a short insulated wire with bare (stripped of
Cut the wire to the length you need, using a wire-cutting tool.
Strip off about 1/4- to 1/3-inch of insulation from each end
Bend the exposed ends of wire at a right (90-degree) angle.
Use your needle-nose pliers to do this.
