Shields

Shields are boards to be mounted on top of the Arduino board and that extend the functionality of Arduino to control different devices, acquire data, etc.

  • Motor Shield - This shield allows an Arduino board to control DC motors and read encoders.

  • Ethernet Shield - This shield allows an Arduino board to connect to the internet.

There are multiple versions of the Arduino board. The current basic board, the Duemilanove, uses the Atmel ATmega328 (datasheet). The older Diecimila, and the first run of Duemilanoves used the Atmel ATmega168 (datasheet), while older boards use the ATmega8 (datasheet). The Arduino Mega is based on the ATmega1280 (datasheet).

  • Prototyping - This board has a section with prototyping holes (as in perf board) so you can easily and stably attach a few extra parts. To make room, however, it has neither a serial nor USB plug, so you'll need to program it with an AVR-ISP or parallel programmer. details

  • Serial Single Sided - This board is a bigger version of the Serial one meant for those that don't have easy access to buy a premade board. Then it is possible to assemble the board out of a cupper plate and some acid. Schematics and CAD Files

Hardware

  • Serial - It's a basic board that uses RS232 as an interface to a computer for programming or communication. This board is easy to assemble even as a learning exercise and should cost less than 20 EUR. Download Eagle Cad files / schematic / part list

  • USB - It's an evolution of the previous board that has a USB port to communicate with a computer. It's more difficult to assemble because of the SMD chip. Download Eagle Cad files / schematic

  • Bluetooth - This is the latest version that eliminates the need for cables going to the microcontroller board. It can be programmed and communicate up to 10 metres away from a computer. It can also be used from a mobile phone. (The design for this board will be downloadable after we debug it :)
