This shield is designed to work like a prototyping stripboard for your Arduino Uno. Just like a stripboard or a solderless breadboard, the pins are tied together into rails and rows.
There are six full-length horizontal rails ideal for power and grounds. We have added solder jumpers to the ends of these rails making it extremely easy to set each individual rail as 5V or GND – just add a blob of solder to select which one you would like to use or leave it empty if you have other plans!
Each pair of full-length rails is separated by vertical rows of 4 pins. This familiar format makes for an easy transfer of a prototype circuit on a breadboard to a much more permanent shield.
The board has the standard Arduino R3 header configuration but will require tall header pins to clear the larger USB or Ethernet ports found on some Arduino models. Shield Stacking headers sold separately.
