Connect Leonard, Uno, Mega or general avr Arduinos to Yun

Hi, All,

For those who want to use the General Arduino Board to use Yun features, I would like to introduce the Yun Shield to you. :)

Yun Shield is an Arduino Shield which will simply turn Arduino board into "Arduino Yun" .

cool Do you have a SD card reader? If not you can not say it is a yun shield.

Jantje: cool Do you have a SD card reader? If not you can not say it is a yun shield.

You can use the USB port for storage. Which will act same as SD card.

Support external antenna is big plus!

Well, not really... :~

Good, but I also think it needs an SD card slot.

With a card slot, it would solve my current problem, which is that I need the features of a Mega connected to the linux side of a Yun. The Yun would be serving the data, both live and historical, so needs an SD card for data storage.

Unfortunately, a USB storage device won't fit inside the standard box.

I agree a USB is not a replacement of a sd slot. If you have a USB device you would need a USB hub that needs power ...... This Linux shield has a SD slot and USB. Maybe this is a solution for you. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/arbor-linux-shield-an-openwrt-wifi-development-board-for-arduino-other-mcus

Thank you for that, Jantje. It looks perfect for what I want.

Dark Cloud has silver lining :D
