The Museduino distributes Arduino pins via Smorgasboard Satellites boards connected to CAT5/RJ45 ports on the shield. Each port allows access to 5 distinct Arduino pins used for sensors/actuators.
|j12||* D8||D11~||D5||* D2~|
|j17||D6~||* D9~||* D3~||D0|
The shield and satellite boards have a labeled solder mask to assist with configuration.
The Museduino allows distributed PWM pins to switch between ports. For example, pin D9~ on j6 can switch places with pin D8 on j5. Pin D3~ on j7 can also switch with Pin D2 on j8. This feature is useful when you need an extra PWM pin to be accessed from a Satellite board.
External Power Jumpers
The Museduino shield includes a jumper which allows for choice in power supply: 5V from the Arduino or an external source.
Named for its smorgasbord qualities, this satellite board allows for a wide range of sensor and actuator configurations on any port.
