Shield compatibility


#1

I learned recently from an NCD support engineer that the Arduino shield will also work with the Mega (though I haven’t actually tried it yet);

Is the “Arduino Micro” shield also compatible with the Arduino Pro Mini ?? I have a couple of the latter that I want to put to good use as 4-20mA senders/receivers using the appropriate NCD modules.

Hi,

The two(Micro and Mini) do not appear to have the same footprint or pinout so they would not be physically compatible. The only way I could see to make that work would be to breadboard the setup together which may be more trouble that it’s worth.
