The MyoWare® 2.0 Cable Shield is part of the MyoWare® 2.0 ecosystem. This ecosystem includes shields that interface seamlessly with the MyoWare® 2.0 Muscle Sensor. This low-cost, Arduino-compatible, all-in-one electromyography (EMG) sensor from Advancer Technologies offers a revolutionary connector system. This system lets you snap shields together with a compact low profile and connect to a microcontroller's analog input to measure a target muscle's raw, filtered, and rectified electrical activity. It eliminates the need for soldering connections between boards.
The MyoWare® 2.0 Cable Shield is a collaboration with Brian Kaminski from Advancer Technologies. A portion of each sale goes back to them for product support and continued development. However, it's important to note that the MyoWare and the Cable Shield are not intended for use in diagnosing, treating, or preventing disease in humans or other animals.
The MyoWare® 2.0 Cable Shield features a 3.5mm TRS Connector and three male snap pins as input electrodes. The board dimensions are 37.57mm x 35.90mm.
