Arduino UNO Compatible Prototyping Shield
This is is a prototyping shield for the Arduino UNO micro-controller. It fits onto the header pins on the Arduino UNO board bringing the Arduino’s pins into its PCB with connections for every pin. One can solder sensors, wires, LEDs, etc to the prototyping board so that they can interact with the Arduino. The advantage of this board over a simple breadboard is that one can solder components (creating a more solid and permanent connection between components) and it fits directly onto the Arduino UNO (making your project look neater).
A mini breadboard is also included with the Arduino UNO Compatible Prototyping Shield!
The Prototyping Shield is also designed to accept some 3rd party components and to make them connect to the correct pins on the Arduino UNO.
