I would like to ask if I can stack directly Adafruit PN532 RFID Shield onto my breadboard. Or do I need something for that? Thank you.

  • no, but shields typically only use a portion of the pins, the rest are passed-through; this means a few dupont connectors can get a shield up and running; no need to connect "extra" pins" for the shield "top" – dandavis Mar 20 '17 at 14:38

Chances are the offset headers won't allow the shield to directly plug into a breadboard.

As @Majenko noted, shields have a header that is offset by 0.16" from the other headers. Since a breadboard is a strict 0.1" grid that header won't fit into the holes.

@Mazaryk is right.

There was a Kickstarter project a few years ago to make just such an adapter. You might get in touch with the developer to find out whether he's made (or is planning) another run.
