WileyCoyote,I do have a few of the Centipede shield prototypes, however the way they're wired mean that only one can be used per Arduino, for a total of 64 extra I/O lines. The redesigned board will be available in about 5 or 6 weeks, and has a jumper to select between two addresses. This will let you use two shields and have 128 extra I/O lines. At the same time, I will be providing breakout boards that will make it easy to interface to all of those signals. Four 20-pin cables lead from each Centipede shield and can plug into either a small breadboard-compatible PCB or a large board with room for solder connectors or standard 0.2" screw terminals.However, if you can't wait six weeks, you could get some of the MCP23017 chips. They are available in DIP form, and you can still use the Centipede library with them. You can put up to 8 of the chips on the I2C bus, with 16 I/O on each chip. The downside is that this requires a lot of soldering work.Let me know if you have any questions...--- Garrett
