Description: By popular request, we’re selling the always-handy ProtoShield PCB on its own! Originally spawned with collaboration between the folks at SFE and ITP @ NYU, the ProtoShield mates with an Arduino development board and gives the user a small soldering area, two general LED footprints, access to a BlueSMiRF socket, a general pushbutton switch footprint, and most important of all - the Arduino reset switch is brought to the top level.
Now you don’t need to buy the whole ProtoShield kit if you just need a piece of prototyping board that will fit on top of your Arduino. You might want to grab a stackable header kit, though, which you can find in the related items below.
Note: Though this board is compatible with the Arduino R3 it does not posses the additional pins that the R3 offers. Make sure you pick your headers accordingly.

Normal protoshields, the kind you buy at Radioshack, are generally too expensive to solder things to and/or buy a lot of. With these, you get as much functionality for a small package. I would highly recommend these for ease of use when designing custom shields. I cant remember how many of these i’ve used, but it is a lot!
Got this to make an attiny programming shield, works very well and don’t have to worry about pin alignment
I don’t know why Sparkfun ignores the ICP/SPI headers. The Adafruit boards and kits all come with stacking headers for it.
