 Product Description

The Breadboard shield has the same pattern as a half size breadboard , there are power connections running down the center for ease of connecting up your designs. This allows you to easily move a circuit from a prototyping breadboard to a more permanent installation. this new revision is Rev 3 compatible and has had twin header rows added.

Please note this does not come with header pins, we have listed male a female headers below:

  1. Well finished board

    Posted by on

    The board is professionally manufactured and the headers fit in very well. Allignment with the Arduino is correct. Just fun for a prototype.

  2. Just about perfect

    Posted by on

    These boards are very handy, and makes it very easy to converting breadboard prototypes into more permanent shields.

    It could be made a little more obvious that the ground and 5V strips are already connected, as I almost made my own wire links before I noticed the tracks connecting the ground and 5V pins!

    One thing to note is that on boards with USB B connectors (the big square one), the ground strip comes very close to the connector, close enough that I won't solder anything there for fear of intentional shorts.

  3. Great development board!

    Posted by on

    Have now used several of these to make up my own shields for various incantations of I/O and RS485 communications boards. They are really easy to use and designs are easily transferrable off the plugin breadboard.

    It would be an advantage to have a choice of selecting either the 5V suppy or 3.3V supply for termination to the main power rail by use of a wire link jumper somewhere.

  4. Great kit, just pre-plan your component placement first

    Posted by on

    These are a great bit kit. However what I would recommend, if stack-ability isn't a requirement of your build, is to get the 40pc breakaway headers instead of the R3 header kit. The Breakaway pins are a lot sturdier and wont bend nearly as much, whilst minimising the height profile of your board.

    Also it's probably obvious, but plan out your design before you just go at it with this, trying to clear solder from the board holes is a nightmare...

    But yes In all, these are a great bit of kit. the 5v and GND rails are conveniently placed and its reall easy to work with. My only problem is that none of the pins have number markings. It's just a minor inconvenience but it would really help if they were numbered.

  5. Needs another hole if you want to put this in the Arduino box

    Posted by on

    For one of my projects I'm putting an Uno and this shield into the 'Box for Arduino' (Part PPA000009). The box has three plastic pillars which go through the three holes in the Uno (and other shields) which hold it in place. This board is missing on of these holes, so I had to cut away a little bit of this shield (the blank part on the right in the picture just above the gnd) to make way for the third pillar.

  6. Great

    These boards are excellent value. The only suggestion I have is that it could list the on-board connections that are already made. I'll be buying more :)

  7. How to connect from the breadboard to the Arduino pins

    Posted by on


    Yes we will add another line of pins that are connected to the arduino pins on rev2. At the moment you just have to jumper from the breadboard row to the already soldered arduino pins.

  8. How you you wire in the arduino pins from the breadboard?

    Posted by on

    To Dave B's comment, I've just finished soldering my first board. It looks great and it works! But I have no idea how to solder in the headers given that I also need to solder in a few pins from the breadboard circuit itself...

    Any suggestions from anyone on how to do this?

    Also noticed that the 2 ground pins are not connected together on the board -- shouldn't be a biggy when it's stacked as you can rely on the arduino to connect these, but prior to stacking it did throw me a bit as the LED didn't ground until I realised it would only do so when stacked.

    On the whole though, I'm chuffed with this -- worked a treat (even though I now have no more finger prints left!)

  9. GND is connected!

    Posted by on

    Just to correct what I posted earlier. I hadn't spotted the GND connection next to digital pin 13. That one is connected to the GND rail, meaning I could have saved myself a bit of soldering on the two boards I've assembled so far! Doh!

    Good to hear there'll be a V2, it won't stop me buying these in the meantime as they are just so convenient for a lot of things I want to do.

  10. Totally agree with dave b

    Posted by on

    Yep, we were so excited to come up with the idea, not enough of us saw the obvious improvements available before we sent the design off to get manufactured.
    Rest assured, rev 2 will contain all these improvements and any others that our customers can suggest before we finalise the design
