There are a lot of different shields out there for Arduino. However, sometimes there arises a need to make your own.
Even more plentiful in the world of electronics are integrated circuits that do a lot of nifty things. Some control output, some input, and some are sensors. In this edition of Projects with Ryan Slaugh I show you how to make your own custom proto shield. This project was influenced by a need I have on another of my projects. That is was directed the choice of components. Your custom needs may be completely different, but this project will help you get a start on custom board making at the proto level.
