The Arduino Proto Shield let you create your own custom circuit that you can insert on top of an Arduino board. If you combine a breadboard (not provided) with the Arduino Prototyping Shield, you will be able to quickly test your own ideas. For sure, you can also solder your components once your design is ready. This product comes assembled with its headers.

This Arduino Shield offers a wide prototyping area that is compatible with 1.0 Arduino pinout. It also contains some extra features like:

  • 1 Reset button
  • 1 ICSP connector
  • 14 pin SMD footprint (50 mils pitch)
  • 20 pin Through Hole footprint (100 mils pitch)

The Proto Shield bring the power from the Arduino standard 5V and GND pins to the two power bus rows placed between the Through Hole package footprint, which can be used for powering the DIP sockets, or for power and ground rows.
