Hello Everyone,

Can any one tell me what are the dimensions of subject shield and what would be the dimenion of compatible bread board to be used with it?

Also, does the accessories like pin strips are part of shield or they have to purcahse separately?


Thanks,
Regards

The maximum length and width of the Proto Shield PCB are 2.7 and 2.1 inches respectively.
If you want more detailed dimensions you should be able to get them from the Eagle design file:

It's not clear what you mean by that. If you want to plug it into a breadboard you're going to have problems.

Note that the distance between digital pins 7 and 8 is 160 mil (0.16"), not an even multiple of the 100 mil spacing of the other pins.
This means that side of the board won't plug into a breadboard because breadboards have 0.1 inch spacing. I have seen headers that fix that offset sold but I don't know whether they are available now.

You should get this:

Hi,

Thanks a lot for swift response Pert.   On this link:

It is mentioned that:  "You can even stick a mini breadboard (not included) on the protoarea for solderless operation".

So i think a breadboard can be plugged/sticked on top of it ?

OK, I thought you were plugging the shield into a breadboard. I have see shields that come with breadboards on them:

Those are using this type of breadboard:

That's not plugged into the shield in any way. The breadboard has some double sided foam tape on the back so it's just stuck on there. You would need to make any electrical connections using jumpers from the headers or the small amount of prototyping circuit board that is not covered by the breadboard.

Thanks a lot. I understand it now.
