Using the Proto Shield Plus with Arduino UNO, LEONARDO or YÚN

Using the Proto Shield Plus is just like any other shield: plug your Arduino board into the UNO / LEONARDO SOCKET.
Connect the UNO, LEONARDO or YÚN by means of a USB cable to your PC and start using it.
If you are using YÚN, you can connect over wifi.

Using the Proto Shield Plus with Arduino NANO


Plug the NANO board in the MICRO / NANO SOCKET (pay attention to pin alignment and orientation).
Connect the NANO board by means of a USB cable to your PC and start using it.

Using the Proto Shield Plus with Arduino MICRO


Plug the MICRO board in the MICRO / NANO SOCKET (pay attention to pin alignment and orientation).
MOSI, SS, SCK and MISO pins remain unconnected.
Connect the MICRO board by means of a USB cable to your PC and start using it.

SCL and SDA pin-out


The SCL and SDA (the pins that perform the I2C communication) pin-out differ depending on the Arduino board.
Thus, you have to select the proper configuration depending on the board you are using.
We will discuss how to configure the Proto Shield Plus board SCL and SDA to route the signals with different Arduino boards in a next article.


Prototyping with the Arduino ZERO board


Arduino ZERO board works with 3,3V signals instead of 5V.
We will discuss how to configure the Proto Shield Plus board to work with 3,3V signals in a next article.
