Arduino ProtoShield Prototype Board with Mini Breadboard
Free Shipping Within The United States!
The ProtoShield mates with the Arduino UNO, Due, or Mega 2560 board and gives the user a small soldering area, two general LEDs, a general pushbutton switch, and most important of all - the Arduino reset switch is brought to the top level.
- 1 reset button, 1 general use button, and 2 LED circuits can be used directly.
- Prototype size: About 2.72*2.09*0.71" (69*53*18mm)
- Mini breadboard size: About 1.85*1.38*0.35" (47*35*9mm)
- All of the pins and the power leads are very fit and build circuit prototyping with Ardui-no.

Note: The board is hardware compatible with the Arduino Uno, Mega 2560 and the Due. However, be aware that the Arduino Due's signals require a 3.3 VDC level. Applying 5 VDC to an input may cause damage to the board's components.
While the board extends the Arduino's control signals such as digital and analog I/O, it also provides two LEDs and one push-button. They are, per default, not assigned to a specific digital input or output. The following shows the simple schematics:
Please be aware that the resistor R4 is not part of the delivery; this must be added by you.
The LEDs and the push-button can be wired showing the connections as shown here:
Arduino ProtoShield Programming Sample
In the following sketch we have assigned LED1 to pin 13, LED2 to pin 12, and the push-button to pin 11. The program lets LED1 blink, while LED2 is controlled by the push-button. Please be aware that the push-button, when pressed, delivers a low signal (see also the schematic). Also, make sure you add the 10 kOhm resistor, which is not part of the delivery.
Important! For the Arduino Uno and Mega 2560 provide 5 VDC to the resistor R4. For the Arduino Due provide 3.3 VDC. Both levels are available on the ProtoShield board.
