Turn your mikromedia board into a gaming console
The mikromedia GAMING Shield is an extension board pin-compatible with several mikromedia boards from mikroElektronika (but not all; see below) that enables you to provide button controls and audio interface to your base mikromedia board. It's also compatible with clicker 2 boards. The combination is suitable for creating your own hand-held game device. The GAMING Shield comes with convenient stacking headers, so you can connect not only mikromedia, but other shields as well, such as the Battery Boost Shield. It's carefully designed to fit perfectly into anyone's hands, and it has convenient holders which provide great stability when the board is connected to a mikromedia.
Compatible Boards While all mikromedia boards have the same basic shield pinout, only the following mikromedia boards support all the functions provided by the GAMING Shield (i.e. buttons, signal LEDs and speakers). The above three are documented in the user manual, with connection details. The following also are supported: This shield also is compatible with clicker 2 microcontroller boards. For example, you can connect motion-sensing and RF or IR wireless Click boards to your clicker 2 to turn this shield into an advanced controller for a robot or external game system.
