Freetronics ProtoShield Short

Ethernet Shields generally come with stackable headers fitted, but the big problem is that because the RJ45 jack is so high it's not possible to stack another shield on top without jamming it on at a strange angle. That's really annoying if you want to build a project that includes both Ethernet and your own parts, because you can't put a regular prototyping shield on top.

So Freetronics fixed the problem: we designed a special prototyping shield that's short enough to fit onto an Ethernet Shield (or our EtherTen) with clearance behind the Ethernet jack: The Freetronics ProtoShield Short

Features

  • Gold plated PCB: solders easily and very resistant to corrosion.
  • Top and bottom overlay.
  • Yellow soldermask so you can write notes on the PCB with a Sharpie.
  • Mounting pads for "reset" button wired through to Arduino reset line.
  • Clearly marked GND and 5V rails beside prototyping area.
  • Sexy rounded corners.

Note that the ProtoShield Short comes without any extra parts at all: no headers, no reset button. Just a bare PCB, ready for you to fit whatever headers and other parts you happen to have handy.
