Arduino Shields

Arduino Shields are boards that can be plugged on top of the Arduino PCB, extending its capabilities. The different shields follow the same philosophy as the original toolkit. These Arduino Shields are easy to mount and cheap to produce. Learn more about the associated Arduino Ethernet Development Tools.

Arduino Ethernet Shields

Arduino Ethernet Shields connect your Arduino to the internet in mere minutes. Just plug this module onto your Arduino board, connect it to your network with an RJ45 cable (not included) and follow a few simple instructions to start controlling your world through the Internet. Arduino Ethernet Shields allow an Arduino board to connect to the internet. These shields are based on the Wiznet W5100 ethernet chip, which provides a network (IP) stack capable of both TCP and UDP. These shields support up to four simultaneous socket connections. Use the Ethernet library to write sketches that connect to the Internet using the shield. The ethernet shields connect to an Arduino board using long wire-wrap headers that extend through the shield. This keeps the pin layout intact and allows another shield to be stacked on top.

Arduino A000044 GSM Shield

Arduino GSM Shield allows an Arduino board to connect to the internet, make/receive voice calls and send/receive SMS messages. The shield uses a radio modem M10 by Quectel (datasheet). It is possible to communicate with the board using AT commands. The GSM library has a large number of methods for communication with the shield. The shield uses digital pins 2 and 3 for software serial communication with the M10. Pin 2 is connected to the M10’s TX pin and pin 3 to its RX pin. See these notes for working with an Arduino Mega, Mega ADK, or Leonardo. The modem's PWRKEY pin is connected to Arduino pin 7. The M10 is a Quad-band GSM/GPRS modem that works at frequencies GSM850MHz, GSM900MHz, DCS1800MHz and PCS1900MHz. It supports TCP/UDP and HTTP protocols through a GPRS connection. GPRS data downlink and uplink transfer speed maximum is 85.6 kbps. Not compatible with Arduino Due.


Features
  • M10 Quad-band GSM/GPRS modem
  • Supports TCP/UDP and HTTP protocols through a GPRS connection
  • Up to 2A of current at peak usage
  • Digital pins 2 and 3 for software serial communication
  • Shield supports AIN1 and AOUT1 as audio interfaces

Arduino A000079 Motor Shield

Arduino A000079 Motor Shield is based on the L298, which is a dual full-bridge driver designed to drive inductive loads such as relays, solenoids, DC, and stepping motors. This shield lets you drive two DC motors with your Arduino board, controlling the speed and direction of each one independently. You can also measure the current absorption of each motor, among other features. The shield is TinkerKit compatible, which means you can quickly create projects by plugging TinkerKit modules to the board. This shield has two separate channels, called A and B, that each use 4 of the Arduino pins to choose the rotation direction, vary the speed, fast brake, or sense the current that is flowing through the motor. In total, there are 8 pins in use on this shield. You can use each channel separately to drive two DC motors or combine them to drive one bipolar stepper motor.


Features
  • Operating Voltage: 5V to 12V
  • Motor controller: L298P, Drives 2 DC motors or 1 stepper motor
  • Max current: 2A per channel or 4A max (with external power supply)
  • Current sensing: 1.65V/A
  • Free running stop and brake function

GHI Electronics FEZ Medusa Shield - 3D

Important note: When using a 5V Arduino, like the Arduino Mega, extra caution should be taken to select modules that can be used safely with 5V micros. This is not a concern when using a 3.3V micro, like the Arduino DUE.

Features:
  • GPIO: 67
  • PWM: 12
  • Analog In: 12
  • UART: 4
  • SPI and I²C available
