The Arduino Nano Shield is an adapter that allows you to install Arduino Nano compatible modules in the mikroBUS slot or connect mikroBUS modules (such as MikroElekronika's Click®) to Arduino Nano or compatible modules.
The Arduino Nano Shield is designed to install
- Arduino Nano, Arduino Nano 33 or STM32 Nucleo-32 to mikroBUS slot:Arduino Nano, Arduino Nano 33, Arduino Nano RP2040 Connect
- Nucleo-32 family (NUCLEO-F031K6, NUCLEO-F042K6, NUCLEO-F303K8, NUCLEO-G031K8, NUCLEO-G431KB, NUCLEO-L011K4, NUCLEO-L031K6, NUCLEO-L412KB, NUCLEO-L432KC, NUCLEO-8S207K8) from STMicroelectronics.
Almost all signals not used by mikroBUS from the installed Arduino Nano or STM32 Nucleo-32 are output to the AUX1 and AUX2 connectors, which makes it possible to use almost all Arduino Nano or STM32 Nucleo-32 functions without changing the programs.
The I2C interface is most often used in the design of devices and instruments based on this module.
The Adafruit Feather Shield contains the voltage regulator AMS1117-3.3. On the bottom-side there is a jumper defining the 3V3 source on the mikroBUS (from the installed to Adafruit Feather module or from AMS1117-3.3). By default - from the installed module.
Optionally, a BME280 is installed on the bottom-side of the module (7-bit address on I2C = 111011x). The address for BME280 is selected with jumpers on the bottom-side. The default address should be 1110111.
The Arduino Nano Shield size 43.18 x 25.4 mm.
The main areas of application of the module:
- Consumer electronics
- Air condition monitoring
- Distributed Data Acquisition Systems
- Smart home control
- Smart sensors
- Motor control
With Arduino Nano Shield, it is easy to use Arduino Nano and compatible modules to control the following Pro Series I / O modules:
- I2C 4AI ADS1x15 Pro
- I2C 2RO+2AI Pro
- I2C 2RO+2DI Pro
