IO Expansion Shield is one of the market favourites. Fast robotics prototyping made affordable and simple thanks to this design. Soldering and wiring often becomes a problem when a bridged connection happens and components break sometimes, increasing time and cost.ط¢آ The IO Expansion Shield for Edison extends Edison's powerful scope into sensing the physical world, and prepares it ready for interaction through wireless communication. Thisط¢آ IO expansion board for Edison is compatible with Arduino open source platform and Linux, and supports Java and C development environment. It can also be used as a standalone communication platform for software like flash, processing, Max/MSP and VVVV.
The IO Expansion Shield for Edison adopts DFRobot's classic color code for sensors/actuators input/output. The 3 pin format for Signal, Voltage and Ground is extremely intuitive, especially if used altogether with our increasingly large range of modules, sensors and devices that just fit.
