The MakerShield kit is the ultimate open source prototyping shield for Arduino and Netduino microcontrollers. Having a prototyping shield is a must have accessory for anyone wanting to go beyond blinking an LED with their microcontroller. If you want to do more, you will need to build a circuit, and if you want to build circuit, you will want a prototyping shield like the MakerShield.

MakerShield’s unique features:

  • User definable components
  • Includes a Potentiometer, button, and (2) LEDs (needed in most circuits)
  • 3.3v & 5v compliant
  • ICSP header in the same location as the Arduino boards
  • Power filtering capacitors on 5v and 3.3v lines

How-To Build a MakerShield

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for 'projects in a box,' otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
