Arduino-based inductance meter

Lukas of Soldernerd built a DIY Arduino-based inductance meter: I’ve just finished a little Arduino project. It’s a shield for the Arduino Uno that lets you measure inductance. This is a functionality that I found missing in just about any digital multi meter. Yes, there are specialized LCR meters that let you measure inductance but they typically […]

Announcing OpenSprinkler Bee (OSBee) Arduino Shield v1.0

Another open source project from RaysHobby, the OpenSprinkler Bee (OSBee) shield: OpenSprinkler Bee (OSBee) shield is an open-source Arduino shield for battery-operated (latching solenoid) sprinkler valves. It’s useful for gardening, lawn watering, flower and plant irrigation, and other watering applications. OSBee has a built-in boost converter and H-bridges to control up to four independent valves. […]

Build an Arduino shield for Quadcopter – Arduino adapter

Oscar  built  his own Arduino shield for Quadcopter: I have been searching for ideas of making a Quadcopter Arduino flight controller Adapter to sit my Arduino nano board and the GY80, also have some header pins for motors and receiver to make the cabling tidy. There are a lot of Arduino shields people have designed for […]

mbedR3uino: mbed adapter for Arduino shields

Dave VW shared his project mbedR3uino in the forum: The mbedR3uino is a vertical shield adapter for the mbed prototyping platform. It provides compatibility with standard Arduino shields including the pins added to Arduino Uno R3 to make shields more independent between main boards. SPI, UART, I2C, Analog, Digital, and PWM pins are wired to appropriate […]

TL-WR702N as Arduino shield

Dirk has written an article detailing how to make a simple Arduino wireless shield using  the TL-WR702N wifi router: There’s always the need for cheaper Arduino equipment and there’s always the need for wireless activities in your project. But an Arduino wireless shield costs much. Everyone of us has got an ethernet shield. They are […]
