Shields


LCD Button Shield
Do you need an easy to use interface for your LCD screen? The LCD Button Shield just might be your answer! Moving through menus and making selections straight from one stand-alone shield attached to your Arduino is a great way to cut down on your tower of shields. The LCD Button Shield consists of a 16x2, black character, green backlight LCD with a keypad consisting of 5 keys — select, up, right, down and left. To save the digital IO pins, the keypad interface uses only one ADC channel. The key value is read through a 5 stage voltage divider. Check the link below for example code, schema..

Go-Between Shield
You hear it all the time in the Arduino community, “will this shield work with my other shield?.” I think we’ve all been disappointed to find that two of our favorite shields compete for control of a digital pin here or a serial pin there. While there are sometimes some clever workarounds from elegant code modifications to aggressive ‘greenwiring,’ Mayhew Labs may have come up with the simplest solution thus far: The Go-Between Shield. The Go-Between Shield “goes between” two shields that aren’t compatible and effectively reassigns the pins. This trickery is achieved by isolating the top and..
