Prototyping in Breakouts, Boards & Electronics

Breakouts add handy functions to your microcontroller, be it a Raspberry Pi, Arduino, or something else. They tend to be dedicated to just one or a couple of functions, like audio output, motor driving, or sensors, but can be built up into larger projects.

MyoWare Proto Shield

This is the MyoWare Proto Shield, a simple proto-board for your MyoWare Muscle Sensor. With this shield you will be able to use the area provided to solder on whatever custom circuitry you can come up with. This shield provides 8 x 15 solderable through holes on a standard 0.1" grid. Read more...
