What is the Arduino Proto Shield R3?
The Arduino Proto Shield R3 allows you to fully customise circuitry and any range of components you want to add, as you would a breadboard, but without having to bridge out.

Keep everything contained to the Arduino development board and its shields providing a much cleaner finish.

The header pins are made easily accessible for soldering if you want to keep certain pins in permanent use. In the theme of accessibility there is an additional reset button on the shield just in case the Arduino development board’s reset button is obscured.

The pin holes are the perfect size for use with small components like LEDs, resistors and small transistors and the larger pitch holes are great for stranded or solid core cable. Perfect for if you’re connecting out to motors and other larger components.

As a shield, this enables you to attach it to most Arduino related development boards that have the same pin layout. Connect to development boards without the need of jump leads or soldering, maximising the amount of space you have to work with while maintaining a tidy finish.

This shield is a middle layer shield, as it uses stacking pins so you can add further breakouts and shields.

How can I get the most out of my project?
For most Arduino boards the reset switch will be made inaccessible when used with this shield, which is why there is an additional reset switch mounted on the outer corner, making it easy to access once again.

Primarily you do not need to solder at all unless you’re wanting to make things permanent. This shield comes supplied with various sized holes for your components. These are available in a range to make sure things fit snug and don’t mimic a cold solder connection. This includes:

14 pin SMD footprint (50 mils pitch),
20 pin Through Hole footprint (100 mils pitch).
Extended features:
1.0 Arduino pinout
1 Reset button
1 ICSP connector
20 pin Through Hole footprint (100 mils pitch)
20 pin Through Hole footprint (100 mils pitch)
