DK ELectronics v1.0 Motor shield - How to use the rest of my Arduino ?


Provided the shield has holes above the unused pins use the headers with longer pins such that you have female side facing up like the arduino and push into the pins you need when shield is in place. If the shield only uses 3 or 4 arduino pins to use it don't put it onto arduino mount it beside and use jumper wires to connect then all unused arduino pins become available option 3 get an expander board that allows several shields beside each other
