This prototyping board allows you to design your own Arduino shield that will have a chip with up to 28-pin SOIC footprint at the heart of it. Space for an SOT23-6 packaged chip is provided as well. The board features patented Schmartboard|ez technology to make soldering surface-mount devices easy. Your SMT part will sit in grooves that hold it in place, and solder is already in the grooves. So all you need to do is put a chip in the grooves, apply flux, and use a small enough soldering tip.
The Arduino header pads are R3 compatible, and provided in both the Arduino offset and "corrected" 0.1-inch pitch. This allows you to make your shield compatible with either or both the official and third-party Arduino systems.
This is a bare board only. All connectors, buttons, resistors, capacitors, ICs, etc., must be purchased separately.
