ProtoScrewShield Kit - Retail

This is the same product as the ProtoScrewShield. The difference is this version comes in fancy clamshell packaging meant for our distributors that need it. Regular customers are welcome to order, but we want to limit the amount of extra packaging finding its way into the trash heap.

The ScrewShield extends all pins of the Arduino out to 3.5mm pitch screw terminals. It also has a lot of the utility provided by Arduino Protoshield, including: a large prototyping space of both connected and unconnected 0.1" spaced through-holes, a couple 5V and GND busses, a reset button, general use push button, and a 5mm yellow LED.

This product includes all the parts shown and comes in kit form and must be soldered together by the end user.

Note: This product is a collaboration with Tod Kurt, John Edgar Park, and Brian Jepson of WingShield Industries and a portion of each sale goes to them for product support and continued development.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

Customer Comments

  • I also got one of these at Microcenter that was missing a switch…. Lucky I had a switch in a parts bin. First issue i’ve ever had from Sparkfun or Microcenter.

    • Sorry about that! If you ever have that problem again, email us and let us know. We can get you taken care of and make sure you receive all the parts you should then.

  • I tried to get 2 different ones of these at Microcenter today. -both- of were missing one of the momentary switches. Is someone in SparkFun’s QA sleeping? I can understand one being a fluke…
