Description of the Mux Shield II
Sometimes your favourite Arduino board may not have enough digital and/or analogue inputs/outputs for your projects. The Mux DEV-11723 Shield II has been designed to meet just this need. It lets you connect 48 digital and analogue inputs/outputs to your Arduino board. Ingeniously arranged as 3*16 rows at the rear of the shield, you’ll be able to use one single large connector to connect directly to the inputs/outputs. This shield uses a clever combination of multiplexers that allows you to configure each of the 48 pins available as an:
- Analogue input
- Digital input
- Digital output
The complexity of the electronics used is tucked away behind an easy-to-use library, with program examples. Note: This shield is sold without the connectors. You can equip yourself with connectors like the shield stacking headers for Arduino.
