Now that you've finally got your hands on a Raspberry Pi(R) , you're
probably itching to make some fun embedded computer projects with it.
What you need is an add on prototyping Pi Plate from Adafruit, which
can snap onto the Pi PCB (and is removable later if you wish) and
gives you all sorts of prototyping goodness to make building on top of
the Pi super easy.
We added lots of basic but essential goodies. First up, there's a big
prototyping area, half of which is 'breadboard' style and half of
which is 'perfboard' style so you can wire up DIP chips, sensors, and
the like. Along the edges of the proto area, all the GPIO/I2C/SPI and
power pins are broken out to 0.1" stips so you can easily connect to
them. On the edges of the prototyping area, all of the breakout pins
are also connected to labeled 3.5mm screw-terminal blocks. This makes
it easy to semi-permanently wire in sensors, LEDs, etc. There's also a
4-block terminal block broken out to 0.1" pads for general non-GPIO
wiring. Finally, we had a little space remaining over the metal
connectors so we put in an SOIC surface mount chip breakout area, for
those chips that dont come in DIP format.
This kit comes as a set of parts, a little soldering is required to
put it together but its really easy, even a beginner can do it in
15-20 minutes or so. The Pi (and our kits) are meant to help us all
learn skills, soldering is fun! Check out our tutorial for how to
The nice thing about this plate is we're getting custom header
breakouts that are taller than usual, so that the proto plate sits
above the metal connectors, out of the way and allows for plenty of
workspace. It fits in our Pi Box enclosure with access to the terminal
blocks so you can keep the Pi safe while prototyping. We'll have
stackable header kits as well for those who want to put multiple
plates on top.

What is the Raspberry Pi(R) ? A low-cost ARM GNU/Linux box. The
Raspberry Pi(R) is a single-board computer developed in the UK by the
Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of stimulating the teaching
of basic computer science in schools. The design is based on a
Broadcom BCM2835 system on a chip (SoC), which includes an
ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHz processor, VideoCore IV GPU, and 256 megabytes of
RAM. The design does not include a built-in hard disk or solid-state
drive, instead relying on an SD card for booting and long-term
storage. The Foundation plans to support Fedora Linux as the initial
system software package/distribution, with support for Debian and Arch
Linux as well - Wikipedia.
