SparkFun Qwiic Shield for Arduino Nano Hookup Guide
The SparkFun Qwiic Shield for Arduino Nano allows you to add the SparkFun Qwiic ecosystem to development boards that use the Arduino Nano Footprint in an easy-to-assemble shield. It connects the I2C bus (GND, 3.3V, SDA, and SCL) on your Arduino Nano to four SparkFun Qwiic connectors. The Qwiic ecosystem allows for easy daisy chaining so, as long as your devices are on different addresses, you can connect as many Qwiic devices as you'd like.
To follow along with this guide, you will need an Arduino with the Nano footprint. This includes the all variants of the Arduino Nano and many other Arduino Nano-compatible boards! Here are just a few of the compatible boards.
The shield comes with a set of stackable headers but, if you would prefer to use other headers or another set of stackable headers, here are a few options:
Now you probably would not want the Qwiic Shield for Arudino Nano if you didn't have any Qwiic products to use with it, right? Well, if you don't have any Qwiic products, the following might not be a bad place to start.
You will need some of our Qwiic cables to connect your devices to the shield. Below are a few options:
Lastly, if you want to use a non-Qwiic I2C device, these adapters help to convert it to a Qwiic connector:
You will need a soldering iron, solder, and general soldering accessories to solder the header pins to the Qwiic shields.
