The Grove Shield FeatherWing for Particle Mesh and all Feathers is an add-under for any Particle Mesh or Feather board, so that you can easily interface with Seeed’s huge collection of Grove sensors. Now you can have full range of hundreds of Grove modules with Particle Mesh along with our Feather line!
Working with Grove requires no soldering. Just plug the sensors, actuators, or displays into this shield via a Grove cable (not included), so you can focus on coding and making!
You get 10 Grove connectors on this shield, including:
4 Grove analog connectors, 2 analog pins each, 5 analog pins in total (they’re in pairs)
4 Grove digital connectors, 2 digital pins each, 5 digital pins in total (they’re in pairs)
Please note that this board was designed for Feathers with our Feather 32u4 / M0 / M4 / nRF52840 / etc pin numbering! So the pin numbers next to each Grove connector match the pin numbering used on those Feathers.
That is, after the I2C pins, the pins go D5, D6, D9, D10, D11 in that order.
If you’re using other Feather boards, and only using the UART (RX/TX), I2C (SDA/SCL) or analog pins (A0-A5), the numbering will match up just fine since that’s the same on pretty much all Feather boards (some, like the ESP8266, don’t have A1-A5 pins). But for the digital connectors, you’ll need to look and match the pin numbers from the Feather you’ve got to the Grove connects since some Feathers have different digital pin numbering. Or use a multimeter to verify connectivity. It’s not a big deal as long as you know to watch out for it, and it only affects the 4 digital connectors.
