    Prototype Shield

    nice little board I may have to get a couple more. It is a neat way to store prototypes that you will use later.

    Pins were bent.

    When I received this for Christmas the pins were bent. I took a pair of duck bill pliers and bent all of the pins back and it works fine. I think the pins were not set the whole way down when it was soldered. Would have been a 4 or 5 star otherwise. I will probably order more if needed.

      I am sorry to hear that your device had bent pins. If you received this from Virtuabotix please let me know and I will try to find a way to prevent this from happening to anyone else.

    Prototype Shield, January 6, 2013

    Great value for money for a prototype shield. I have a couple of these items with the mini-breadboard fitted. Virtuabotix does a nice job with these shields IMHO.

    – Reasonable well made
    – Comes with a mini-breadboard with a adhesive pad underneath so you can attach it to the shield

    – Has to be the top shield as it isn’t possible to stack another shield on top of it
    – Lack of female headers for the on-board LEDs and push-button connectors

    The latter item is only really a problem if you want to attach the mini-breadboard and use jumper wires to connect to the LEDs and push-button.

    Makes your Projects Neater and easier to Show

    All of us have breadboards, so why would you need a little shield like this . . . just build on a separate breadboard and run jumpers over. Well, that is what I thought, until I got my hands on one of these little shields, and now I would never go back to a separate breadboard.

    This shield allows you to build your project right on top of the arduino. It results in a much more compact, and much better looking prototype. Easier to carry around and show off than building on a separate breadboard. Also, there is less chance of wires coming lose and it makes it easier to wire things up correctly the first time.

    I bought one of these, but intend on ordering more, now that I see how well they work.

    Another great Virtuobotix product!

    The item arrived fast and on time. I have not used the item as yet, but they look to be of good quality. I will rate items at four at this time since I have not used them yet.

    I Love it

    Said it all and I love it even more as my new ISP Programmer. Assembling prototype shields is exciting for me exactly once…
    I was wanting to make an ISP programmer and one that could program things like Tiny’s. When I saw the
    Adafruit tutorial the idea was done. I wired it as suggested all but the Zif socket which was wired for Attiny4313’s and Attiny85’s. The ISP connector connects to any Arduino chip with a 6 pin header on it for re/programming. A nice shield with the right stuff for a LOT of projects because it has a nice compliment of ‘extra’ footprints.
