Proto Shield Kit for Arduino Mega

Proto Shield Kit for Arduino Mega
$17.95, 10/$161.60

Product Description:

The Arduino Mega now has its very own prototyping shield! The MegaShield mates with the Arduino Mega board and gives the user a prototyping area, two general LEDs, and, most important of all, the Arduino Mega reset switch is brought to the top level. The shield also works with our small breadboards if you don't want to solder to the prototyping area.

This comes in kit form and must be soldered together by the end user. All soldering is through-hole (relatively easy) but always check your component orientation before soldering!

Kit Includes:

1x MegaShield PCB
11x 8-pin Stackable Headers
1x Bright 5mm Green LED
1x Bright 5mm Red LED
2x 330 Ohm resistors
1x Momentary Push Buttons
1x 10k resistor


All Arduino Mega pins are brought to the top level
5V and GND power busses
Power and stat (connected to D13) LEDs
Reset Button brought to top level
