Electronic enthusiasts and developers may be interested in a new addition to the ever-growing range of electronic components available from Adafruit, in the form of the Wio Lite Grove Shield FeatherWing for all Feathers. Now available to purchase for $5.95 the Grove Shield FeatherWing provides 10 Grove connectors in one handy shield.
“If you’re using other Feather boards, and only using the UART (RX/TX), I2C (SDA/SCL) or analog pins (A0-A5), the numbering will match up just fine since that’s the same on pretty much all Feather boards (some, like the ESP8266, don’t have A1-A5 pins). But for the digital connectors, you’ll need to look and match the pin numbers from the Feather you’ve got to the Grove connects since some Feathers have different digital pin numbering. Or use a multimeter to verify connectivity. It’s not a big deal as long as you know to watch out for it, and it only affects the 4 digital connectors.”
Connections include :
– 4 Grove analog connectors, 2 analog pins each, 5 analog pins in total (they’re in pairs)
– 4 Grove digital connectors, 2 digital pins each, 5 digital pins in total (they’re in pairs)
– 1 Grove I2C connector (these will also fit our 4-pin STEMMA connectors)
– 1 Grove UART connector (RX and TX)
Adafruit explains that the board was designed for Feathers with our Feather 32u4 / M0 / M4 / nRF52840 / etc pin numbering! So the pin numbers next to each Grove connector match the pin numbering used on those Feathers. That is, after the I2C pins, the pins go D5, D6, D9, D10, D11 in that order.
