The SparkFun Qwiic Shield for Teensy and SparkFun Qwiic Shield for Teensy Extended provide an easy-to-assemble way to add the SparkFun Qwiic ecosystem to Teensy development boards. Both of these shields connect the I2C bus (GND, 3.3V, SDA, and SCL) on your Teensy 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.
This shield provides an easy way to SparkFun's Qwiic ecosystem with your Teensy 4.0, 3.2, or LC board footprint.
This shield provides an easy way to SparkFun's Qwiic ecosystem with your Teensy 4.1, 3.6, or 3.5 board footprint.
To follow along with this tutorial, you will need a Teensy development board with either the "standard" or "extended" form factor. Here are is a collection of the compatible boards. Note, some of them come with headers pre-populated, so keep that in mind when considering which headers to populate on your shield.
The Teensy 4.1 features an ARM Cortex-M7 processor at 600MHz, four times larger flash memory than the 4.0, and optional locat…

The Qwiic Shield includes a set of stackable headers to fit the Teensy footprint but you may also need some headers to solder to your Teensy. Or if you would prefer to use another header type for your shield assembly we've listed a few options below:
A row of headers - break to fit. 40 pins that can be cut to any size. Used with custom PCBs or general custom headers.
Single row of 40-holes, female header. Can be cut to size with a pair of wire-cutters. Standard .1" spacing. We use them exte…
Each kit of headers makes your Teensy 4.0, 3.2, and LC breadboard compatible and will allow for stacking a Teensy and Teensy-…
Now you probably would not want the Qwiic Shield for Teensy 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:
