Proto Shield PCB in Fritzing?

by jrp3 on Sun Jan 27, 2013 3:25 pm

Are there any plans to release a Fritzing part for the Proto Shield PCB (or the completed shield)? If not, it would be REALLY cool to have one. Normally, I would just sub in an existing part from the library that was close enough to serve as an analog, but the unique layout of the PCB (specifically re: the rail positions) makes it really challenging to substitute an alternate proto shield or breadboard.

Thanks!

we'll have one after we revise the protoshield (no ETA but we are working on it).

Still no ETA. Lots of products in the queue.

I have just finished developing a Fritzing part for this shield.

I'm actually quite impressed with this part (If I don't say so myself). Firstly, in the breadboard view, the part is on the same layer as the breadboard so you can put a mini breadboard on top of it just like in real life.

In the schematic view, only the connectors are shown so that you can design real circuit schematics without the protoshield part getting in the way.

Image

In the PCB view, it is a bare Arduino shield so that you can design your own shield layout.

I've released this under the MIT licence, so enjoy. Let me know if you strike any problems.
