This prototyping board allows you to design your own Arduino shield. The board features an offset through-hole pattern that provides you with greater flexibility than standard through-hole boards. This kit includes all the basic components most Arduino shields need (stackable headers, LEDs, buttons, resistors, capacitor), plus a 170-point solderless breadboard.
The Arduino headers 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.
Arduino Shield Prototyping Kit Contents As well as the PCB itself and the solderless breadboard, this kit includes the following through-hole components:
Standard Components These are components that are pretty much required for any Arduino shield.
- Two single-pin male headers
- Two LEDs, red
- Two 1×8 0.1"-pitch stackable female headers
- One 1×6 0.1"-pitch stackable female header
- One 1×10 0.1"-pitch stackable female header
- Two 1k Ohm resistors
- One push-button switch
Reset Circuit Components These components also are included, but you only need them if your shield will have a reset circuit.
- Push-button switch
- Capacitor, 0.1 µF
- Resistor, 1k Ohm
- Single-pin male header
