Arduino Prototype Shield ProtoShield With Mini Breadboard For Arduino Prototyping

Includes mini 170 tie point breadboard and 65 jumper cables (approx).

Arduino Prototype Shield with mini breadboard and jumper cables.

The Protoshield provides a great way to prototype new ideas on the Arduino - keeping everything neatly together. The included mini breadboard can be used to quickly prototype circuits, test out ideas or easily experiment with components and modules.  If you want to make your project more permanent you can solder components directly to the shield.

The provided jumper cables allow you to connect signals and power to the mini breadboard or to external components, modules and breadboards.

Detailed description of the Arduino Prototype Shield:

Pins Available from Arduino

  • Digital D0 to D13
  • Analog A0 to A5
  • Vin, 3.3V, Reset and ARef
  • 8 x Gnd pins
  • 6 x 5V pins

Compatible with Arduino UNO and Arduino Mega.

When mounted on the Arduino Mega only the pins listed above are available on the protoshield but other Mega pins are still accessible directly from the Mega board, see picture:

(The Arduino microcontroller boards and additional components are obviously not included in this sale.)

Arduino Prototype Shield:

  • Area for soldering components directly or use to mount supplied mini breadboard.
  • 2 general purpose LEDs with 1K current limiting resistors to use in your own projects.
  • 1 general push button switch to use in your own projects.
  • 1 Arduino reset switch.
  • 5V, GND, and all main UNO pins are available.

Mini Breadboard:
