Terminal Shield




Terminal Shield description:

Breaks out all the Arduino headers to handy screw terminals, making it really easy to connect external wires without using a soldering iron.

The center area of the shield is also a prototyping area, allowing you to add your own parts to suit your project. A blue “power” LED shows when your Arduino is powered up, and there are also red, green, and blue general-purpose LEDs with current-limiting resistors.

Terminal Shield




Terminal Shield specification:

  • Gold-plated surface: solders easily and very resistant to finger oil, etc.
  • Large prototyping area with through-plated holes.
  • Clearly marked GND and 5V rails beside prototyping area.
  • Blue surface-mount “power on” LED.
  • 2 × 100nF power supply smoothing capacitors pre-fitted as surface-mount parts.
  • Reset button wired through to the Arduino so you can reset it even with the shield mounted over the top.
  • 3 general-purpose surface-mount LEDs (red, green, blue) with current limiting resistors pre-fitted: drive HIGH to illuminate.
  • Overlay printed on both the top and the bottom of the board so you don’t have to turn it over to see what you’re soldering onto.
  • Sexy rounded corners.

Terminal ShieldNote:
No I/O pins specifically used: all broken out for user connections.
