Arduino Experimenting Shield 2.0
In the 2014 July/August issue of Elektor we wrote about our Arduino Extension Shield that, in particular for the Arduino Uno, provided additional interface options, LEDs, pushbuttons and an LCD. The shield enjoyed — and continues to enjoy — a great deal of interest. Time for a makeover! The Arduino Experimenting Shield 2.0 offers largely the same features as its predecessor, but, after 3.5 years, quickly revisiting the specific details can do no harm.
