  • In a maker - tinkerer, non-industrial manufacturing - context: A breadboard gives easy, breadboard and fat-finger wire-able access to devices - ICs, modules - that come in (small) packages that have a very small pin / lead pitch or do not even have pins / leads - but pads, balls,...

    For semiconductor packaging, see semiconductor-packaging, from where attached history diagram comes).

    Sometimes - actually most of the times - additional component - components that are required or most useful to use the device - put on that breakout bard to make makers life even more convenient... you can make such things yourself by a taking piece of board with just holes where you wire the device to and put pins on it. For surface mount ICs you can buy breakout boards. Espruino originated breakout boards and variety of useful breakout boards that go well with or are even specially built come from @Gordon and @DrAzzy. For special occasions you make them yourself: ESP8266 ESP-09 on a header.
