 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi all,

I haven't been able to find a definitive statement whether or not the Arduino Motor Shield R3 is compatible with the Leonardo?

I need to be able to control a DC motor, monitor the current and access an SPI port, so I cannot use the Motor Shield with a Uno, but the Leonardo would be ideal.

I'm prepared to modify / write a library if necessary, I just need to know if the two can work together before buying the kit!

Thanks!

Will that shield tie the Leonardo D11/12/13 pins to the ICSP pins?

I need to be able to use both independently.
