Arduino Shield Add-on for Raspberry Pi

this post is all about the Arduino Shield (Add on) -RaspberryPi interfacing .This interfacing makes the use of Raspberry Pi too good, thereby facilitating the use of all Arduino shields with Raspberry Pi. Shields are modules that can be fitted to the Arduino platform, allowing one to add functionalities or increase capacity. The Arduino community has created a number of them. In this workshop we will present some of them, such as Protoshields, Shields Xbee, GPS, Ethernet..

 

You can get a board from our site here : Arduino Shield for Raspberry Pi

The features of the Board are as follows :

  • extend RPI 32pin connector to Arduino Shield.
  • two groups of Grove electronic brick interfaces.
  • two electronic brick intefaces.
  • two optional voltage levels 3V3/5V

Warning : Be caution with the Voltage change-over switch , as it may damage your shields if you give wrong voltage.
