Teensy Arduino Shield Adapter Hookup Guide
The Teensy Arduino Shield Adapter is a useful tool for upgrading existing projects to a more powerful controller. If you have an Arduino shield you'd love to use, but prefer working with the Teensy, then this product is just what you need!
To follow along with this tutorial, we recommend you have access to the following materials.
As this adapter was originally designed for the Teensy 3.1, we recommend using either the Teensy 3.1 or 3.2. However, th footprint is compatible with the Teensy LC (not all of the features available on the adapter are compatible with the LC... see Teensy Compatibility section).
In addition to the Teensy, you will need a micro-USB cable (examples below):
To assemble the adapter shield, you will need some soldering equipment (examples below):
