Introduction: Arduino ProtoShield

About: A candle loses nothing of its light when lighting another

In this project, we will be making an Arduino Protoshield which supports and electrically connects electronics components to the Arduino for better wiring and design.

It’s a fairly easy project and could be used on variety projects.

Step 1: List of Material

For this project, we will be using:

- Arduino boards (mine Arduino Uno Rev3)

- Dot Matrix PCB / Protoboard

- Male header

- Solder + Lead

Step 2: Modify Male Pin Header

Step 3: Modify Protoboard

Step 4: Make the Protoshield

In general, the connections are very simple. Follow the instructions and images above, and you should have no problems.

  • Insert the header into the Arduino
  • Align Dot Matrix PCB to the header pins
  • Solder the header pin to PCB

Step 5: Enjoy!

After making sure that everything works smoothly, you can design necessary circuit and solder electronics directly on it!

Plug the Protoshield to the Arduino and you're good to go!
