In our previous article, we examined what an Arduino shield is, how to build a simple custom shield and discussed how to quickly identify shields that are good candidates for a Netduino adaptation versus shields that may not be. In this article, we’ll take a popular Arduino Logger Shield produced by Adafruit and we’ll interface it with a Netduino / Plus microcontroller
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
