Arduino is a popular open-source electronics computing platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. A basic Arduino board is quite versatile in it's own right and, depending on the model chosen, provides features such as serial communications, analog and digital I/O, USB, or EtherNet.
In practice however, most system designs benefit by adding specialized and general purpose peripheral boards, also called "shields", to enhance and expand the basic functionality. The peripheral boards plug in to mating connectors located on the Arduino in a stack-together fashion. Numerous manufactures support the Arduino standard resulting in readily available off-the-shelf solutions, multiple product sources, and reduced costs.

Interfacing an Arduino UNO, MEGA2560 or compatible to external devices is easy with our DIO24-ARD. On-board high-current drivers and the IDC connector match industry standard 8, 16, and 24 position Solid-State Input/Output Modules and racks.Key Features
Give your Arduino MEGA2560 the memory it needs to handle more sophisticated applications. The XMEM+ plugs on top of the MEGA and uses simple software routines to activate and manage the added SRAM memory. Use the Expansion Bus to develop and test parallel circuitry. Your circuits actually become part of the MEGA2560 memory space and run at full system clock speed. No execution time and resource wasting "bit-Banging" needed!Key Features
