the perfect CAT toy.
The Museduino distributes 5 different Arduino pins on ports A, B, C, or D labeled on the shield. A satellite (S) connected on either port allows access to the specified Arduino pins used for sensors/actuators.
The shield and satellite boards have a labeled solder mask to assist with configuration. Changes to the labeling on our boards have simplified the pin chart.
The Museduino allows distributed PWM pins to switch between ports. For example, pin D9~ on port B can switch places with pin D8 on port A. Pin D3~ on Port D can also switch with Pin D2 on port C. This feature is useful when you need an extra PWM pin to be accessed from a Satellite board.
5V Power Jumper
The Museduino shield can be powered separately from the Arduino by using the the 5V Jumper. The jumper allows for choice in power supply: 5V from the Arduino or 5V directly to the shield.
Since satellites connected via CAT5 cables can be as long or short as needed, this ability is particularly useful for large-scale installations.
Smorgasboard Satellite Board
Named for its smorgasbord qualities, this satellite board allows for a wide range of sensor and actuator configurations on any port.
External Power Board
The External Power board is designed for sensor and actuators that require their own external power supply (NeoPixels, DC Motors, etc). Similar to the 5V Jumper, the onboard External Power Jumpers give you the option of Arduino 5V or External 6-12V.
