 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I am looking for a board that will permit a "Arduino Mega 2560" and any standard/mega shield to be plugged into it, with the relevant connections, switch/link selectable.

Similar to this:

Does anyone know of such a board?

Thank you.

I use the same shield as for the Arudino , it fits. It does not cover the extra headers so those are available.

This is a kit that needs soldered. It's effing half the cost of an arduino!

I see several online, I have no clue about them. The sparkfun looks the best.

I've taken to just using my giant and mini bread boards. If I want a permanent solution I'll either buy another unit or find one of the bare bones ones. I was considering a freeduino epic that has no headers or usb but I can buy a whole mega for the same cost.

If it was designed by man it can be repaired by man.

I have an Arduino Uno Shield from the same company and it works well and solders very easily.
