Parallax has added Arduino to the popular "Board of Education" system. This shield allows for convenient breadboard prototyping and servo ports with your Arduino, with no soldering required. It'll also give you easy access to Parallax's breadboard-friendly sensors and accessories.


Description [Hide]

Parallax has been a HUGE influence on hobby microcontroller use. They were the first to make it easy, then they did an excellent job documenting it and teaching ow to use the Basic Stamp. With the popularity of Arduino, the "Board of Education" system is now open to be used with the Arduino Uno, Mega, and Duemilanove! Designed to be physically compatible with any Arduino Uno or Mega form-factor module.

The Board of Education Shield is available alone, or conveniently packaged with the classic Boe-Bot chassis, servos, electronic components, and additional hardware in the Robotics Shield Kit.

Features:

  • 17 row x 2 column breadboard for convenient circuit-building
  • Headers for power (Vin, 5 V, 3.3 V) Ground, Digital I/O and Analog In are brought adjacent to the breadboard
  • Onboard 5 V regulator supplies up to 1 A, great for robotics and animatronics applications
  • Onboard 3.3 V regulator supplies up to 200 mA for project circuits and accessories, such as XBee modules
  • 4 servo ports with power selection jumper for regulated 5 V or Vin (Arduino's supply voltage)
  • 3-position power switch for power header only or power header + servo ports
  • RESET button resets the Arduino
  • Supply indicator LEDs for breadboard and servo power


Specifications:

  • Power requirements: 7 to 12 VDC, through Arduino VIN
  • Communication: Serial over USB through Arduino
  • Dimensions: 4 x 3.05 in (10.2 x 7.75 cm)
  • Operating temp range: 32 to 158 °F (0 to 70 °C)


Note: Arduino or similar form-factor module and programming cable required, not included. Optional hardware for standoffs and for securing the two boards together is available separately; see the Board of Education Shield documentation for details.
