The chipKIT Basic I/O Shield is a input/output expansion board designed
for use with chipKIT microcontroller boards such as the Uno32™ and the
The Basic I/O Shield is designed to provide a range of input/output
devices suitable for beginners learning about microcontrollers and
various types of I/O devices, or for use by more advanced user to
provide inputs or outputs for their own projects.
The Basic I/O Shield provides simple digital input devices such as
switches and buttons, and digital output devices such as discrete LEDs
and high current open FET drivers. It provides more advanced devices
such as an I2C EEPROM, an I2C temperature sensor, and organic LED graphic display. A potentiometer is also provided for use as an analog input device.
The Basic I/O Shield is designed to the same form factor as the Uno32 board, but is also usable with the Max32 board.
