Olympia, WA, April 29, 2013, Olympia Circuits introduces the Arno Shield to expand their line of products for new Arduino users.  The Arno Shield contains all the components necessary to learn Arduino programming when plugged into an Arduino compatible board without any messy wires.  The original Arno Learning Kit was introduced last year and received a great response as an innovative approach to learning the basics of electronics and Arduino.  The shield provides another way for new users to dive into the world of Arduino and breaks down barriers to learning about microcontrollers.

The Arno Shield will be available for purchase at olympiacircuits.com on May 2nd.

The Arno Shield shares the same features of the Arno, but in a familiar shield form factor.  Bring your own Arduino compatible board, drop in the shield and start learning to write sketches.

The Arno Shield comes with the well regarded book “Learn Arduino with the Arno” which gives step-by-step instructions for more than forty projects.  All the components for the projects are built into the Arno Shield, so no wiring is necessary, just plug and play.  The Arno shield, like the original Arno, is fully compatible with the Arduino programming language and integrated development environment.

To allow for a wide range of learning projects, the shield includes the following devices:

  • Four green LEDs
  • One RGB LED
  • One infrared LED
  • Two momentary pushbutton switches for digital inputs
  • One thumbwheel potentiometer to introduce analog measurements and controls
  • One piezo element to create tones and measure vibrations
  • One phototransistor to detect infrared and visible light
  • An I2C digital temperature sensor to introduce between-device digital communication

Users of the Arno have enjoyed the ability to dive right in to programming without messing with wires and small parts.  Like the original Arno, the Arno Shield and an Arduino compatible board make a good travel kit that wonʼt get you hung up in security.

Arno V1Kevin and Peter Gould from Olympia Circuits started selling their own Arduino-compatible LeOlympia development boards at the various Maker Faires. In the course of demoing and talking to people they recognized the need for something even simpler to get people into the world of programming microcontrollers. The result is the [...]
