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.
The MyoWare Proto Shield is equipped with two rows of 3-pin plated through-holes on each end of the board. This allows for standard 0.1" headers to be used to stack the shield with other MyoWare boards.
The MyoWare Muscle Sensor, that this shield attaches to, is an Arduino-powered, all-in-one electromyography (EMG) sensor from Advancer Technologies. The MyoWare board acts by measuring the filtered and rectified electrical activity of a muscle; outputting 0-Vs Volts depending the amount of activity in the selected muscle, where Vs signifies the voltage of the power source.
This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

Very handy board, too good to be limited to MyoWare. Can be used for any kind of electronic DIY project.
I've used this for general prototyping in a few projects that do not involve using muscle sensor. This isn't limited to just using it for the MyoWare ecosystem. ;)
