Arduino Electric Imp Shield US$19.95

DEV-12887
Arduino Electric Imp Shield


This shield provides an interface between your Arduino and your Electric Imp.

This is not an SD Card Shield! It is only for the Electric Imp a WiFi-enabled development platform with ARM Cortex-M3 processor that comes in an SD Card package.

The Electric Imp Shield, when an Electric Imp is installed, allows you to connect your Arduino project to the internet through your home WiFi network. This way, your Arduino can take advantage of the Imp Cloud service and connect to HTTP APIs. You could even reprogram your Arduino from a remote location.

An Electric Imp is not included.

The Shield connects one of the Imp's UARTs (Imp pins 5 and 7) to either the Arduino hardware UART or a software serial on pins 8 and 9. It defaults to the software serial, but there are trace jumpers on the bottom side to set it to the hardware serial. A couple Imp pins (8 & 9) are also connected to LEDs. They can be disconnected via trace jumpers on the bottom.

Because the Electric Imp can draw up to 400mA on the 3.3V line, this shield has its own voltage regulator which is fed from the 5V Arduino line. Most Arduino-compatible boards should be able to handle this amount of draw, but beware that some clones that use less robust VREGs could see trouble.

Arduino headers are not installed or included. You will need to solder headers to this shield before you can plug it into your Arduino. See the optional products list at the bottom of this page.
