sensors_20170729-0213.jpgScrew-terminal shield:  $4.00  An Arduino Nano or Pro Mini can be seated in the headers and the pins will be connected to screw-terminals. Connections to other devices can then be made without soldering by inserting wires into the terminals and tightening with a screwdriver. The pin labels are for an Arduino Nano, but most are also correct for the Pro Mini. Four pins on the Pro Mini will not connect to terminals, but it is very handy for prototyping with either the Nano or Pro Mini. Ed Mallon's post

 

sensors_20170729-0235ps.jpgUART adapter cable: $5.50  FTDI FT232RL USB to TTL Serial Converter. The Arduino Pro Mini does not have a USB port, so a device like this is needed to load programs onto the Pro Mini. A 6-wire DuPont cable is included to connect the pins on the Pro Mini with the UART adapter pins. A USB cable is included to connect the adapter to your computer. Either 3.3v or 5v operation via jumper.
