First shield pics for Arduino MEGA


Hack a Day reports on what appears to be the first shield created specifically for the forthcoming Arduino MEGA board. NKC’s prototyping shield is of course predictably longer and uhhh … mega-er. The comment thread over at NKC points out that their shield only has 2 holes for standoffs – apparently the massive connecting pin-count offers sufficient stability on its own.

  1. With that many pins, the friction will make the shields hard to separate from the main board. I wonder if there’s an ingenious way to apply leverage to separate them, without damaging the board(s)?

    1. Hmmm, ingenious leverage method … a screwdriver?! ;)
      of course there is the option of only soldering in the pins you think you’ll need for a specific project.
