General Description

The RDBKUNO1 breakout provides a convenient method to connect to and mount an Arduino Uno. When paired with a DIN Rail Mounting Plate such as DINP01-4040B (not included), an Arduino Uno can easily be mounted on a DIN rail.

After plugging an Arduino Uno into the pin headers on the bottom side, signals may be conveniently accessed at terminal blocks and/or thru-hole pads. If a shield is needed, it can be plugged into the socket headers on the top side.

A number of convenient design features, such as a prototype area and pads that accommodate a DC-DC converter* for operation from higher supply voltages, facilitate the inclusion of an Arduino Uno in a variety of projects.

*See app note section for more information. DC-DC converter is not included with RDBKUNO1.

Connection Details

In general, signal connections are self-explanatory. Each signal on the Arduino Uno headers is brought out to a terminal block position and a plated-thru hole. In addition, the signals are present at socket headers (receptacles) that allow a shield to be installed.

In the case of a few signals (Ground, 5V, and 3.3V), the signals are available at multiple thru-hole locations and terminal block positions.

For the ICSP (2x3) header, the 6 signals connect directly between the 2x3 socket header on the bottom and the 2x3 pin header on the top, providing SPI bus access for shields as well as stand-alone programmers. These 6 signals do not connect anywhere else on the RDBKUNO1 board itself. However, once an Uno board is installed, these various signals will connect to the expected breakout board access points thru the Uno board. (Example: Pin 5 on the 2x3 ICSP header is RESET. Once an Uno is installed, this signal will be connected (thru the Uno) to the RESET signal access points at the terminal block, plated hole, and socket header.)


A breakout board is sometimes referred to as a "transition module", "terminal board", "terminal block", "breakout box", "breakout adapter", "terminator", or "interface module".
