Introduction: Arduino ProtoShield
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!
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
