Olympia Circuit has designed a new Arno Shield which it has created to make the learning curve with Arduino a little easier. The new Arno Shield is equipped with all the buttons and lights you need to enjoy building over 40 educational projects.
The Arno Shield has been designed to fit on to existing boards such as the Olympia Circuit LeOlympia or an Arduino Uno, and because it is complete unit owners don’t need to add any wires or extra parts to use it.
“The Arno Shield comes with the well regarded book “Learn Arduino with the Arno” which gives step-bystep instructions for more than forty projects. All the components for the projects are built into the Arno Shield, so no wiring is necessary, just plug and play. The Arno shield, like the original Arno, is fully compatible with the Arduino programming language and integrated development environment.”
Once the projects are complete the Arno Shield can then simply be removed from the main board. The Arno Shield is launching on May 2nd for $60. For more information on the new Arno Shield jump over to the Olympia Circuit website for details.
The Olympia Circuit Arno Shield includes the following devices:
– Four green LEDs
– One RGB LED
– One infrared LED
– Two momentary pushbutton switches for digital inputs
– One thumbwheel potentiometer to introduce analog measurements and controls
– One piezo element to create tones and measure vibrations
– One phototransistor to detect infrared and visible light
– An I2C digital temperature sensor to introduce between-device digital communication
