Arduino Prototyping Shield Bundle

Order Code: ARPRO-BDL1
Price: USD $7.50


Bundle includes one each of ARPROTO1, ARPROTO2, ARPROTO3, and ARPROTO4.  These are high-density prototyping shields intended for constructing application circuits for Arduino or Esduino using classic point-to-point wiring methods.  Four different classic pad patterns to support different types of through-hole parts (e.g. 7-segment LEDs, bargraphs, DIP switch, DIP chips, pin-row headers, etc.).  These shields were designed for the original Arduino and Esduino.  If you're using Arduino UNO, EsduinoXtreme, or Freedom boards (which have extra header pins), see our ARPRO-BDL2 instead.

Pad arrangements of the prototyping shields can be found here.

How To Use

Print out the actual-size layout pattern included in the datasheet PDF as a template to plan your component layout and wiring. Then solder the components in place, and use ordinary wire-wrap wire (i.e. Kynar AWG30 wire) to make the interconnections. Component pins will have three extra pads associated with them, making it easy to make multiple connections to one signal (e.g. a capacitor lead, a resistor lead, and the lead of a crystal). Arduino and EsduinoXtreme signals appear on the outer rows of header pads, while the additional signals available on certain Kinetis Freedom boards appear on the inner rows. Access the signals you need by soldering one end of your point-to-point wiring to the designated pin. If you're using stackable headers, you'll have to solder to the header pins on the bottom. To accomplish point-to-point wiring, just cut wires to length, strip a little insulation off the ends, and solder directly to the desired pads on the bottom of the board. Wiring can be routed on the top of the board or the bottom-- or both! Many a high-density prototype has been reliably and efficiently constructed using this approach.
