The Arduino Stackable Header Kit - R3 is a set of headers specifically designed for compatibility with Arduino Uno R3, Leonardo, and newer Arduino boards. The headers are of the ideal height to clear the USB-B connector, making them excellent for stacking multiple shields. The kit comprises four headers, including two 8-pin, one 10-pin, and one 6-pin, providing just the right amount to connect a shield to an Arduino board. These headers are the same ones that Sparkfun utilises in their tutorials and with their shields.
For boards that do not adopt the Arduino R3 architecture, which includes the OREF, SCL, and SDA pins, Sparkfun offers another kit to cater to these specific situations. This ensures that you're not left out, regardless of the type of board you're using.
The Arduino Stackable Header Kit - R3 includes:
- 2x - 8-pin Arduino Stackable Headers
- 1x - 6-pin Arduino Stackable Headers
- 1x - 10-pin Arduino Stackable Headers
The kit also comes with a mechanical drawing document to guide you in setting up the headers correctly. The Sparkfun Arduino Stackable Header Kit - R3 is a versatile and essential tool for any Arduino project, ensuring seamless connection and stacking of shields.
The benefits of using this kit are numerous. It makes stacking multiple shields a breeze, and its compatibility with various Arduino boards adds to its versatility. Moreover, the headers are of the perfect height to clear the USB-B connector, eliminating any potential connection issues. With the Sparkfun Arduino Stackable Header Kit - R3, you can ensure a smooth and efficient Arduino project execution.
