New RobotGeek I/O Boards are Here!

Monday, February 11th, 2013

We’ve been busy the last few months perfecting our new line of RobotGeek I/O boards, and they’re finally ready for the debut! We do a lot of rapid prototyping, and we’ve seen our fair share of I/O boards and shields – but none of them have been exactly what we needed. So we finally decided to make our own!

These boards use a standard 2.54mm(.1″) pitch 3-pin connector – just like a standard hobby servo. This makes these I/O boards compatible with standard 3-Pin cables and breaboards. You can even use a Squid Cable to hook a board directly to your Arduino! Also like hobby servos, our boards use a standard ground-voltage-signal pinout, making them compatible with a wide variety of sensor shields and interface boards.

Digital Input

Out basic Pushbutton is great for any project that needs a simple digital input. For basic orientation sensing, we also have the RobotGeek Tilt Sensor. This board has multiple output ports for the tilt sensor, making it easy to mount in any project.
