I am new to the arduino world. My first arduino project will be connecting up a mega 2560 to 48 SSRs to control some christmas lights.
I think I have that part mostly figured out...
I'd like to be able to hook up an ethernet shield to my mega 2560 and have both ETHERNET AND 48 digital output pins.
Will the addition of the ethernet shield reduce my access to the digiatal output pins? The board has pass thru pins
for everything... BUT doesn't the ethernet shield need some of those I/O pins that are passing through it for
It's a V1.1 Arduino Ethernet Shield. There are 6 ISCP pins on TOP of the board, next to the reset button, but they
do not extend downwards, so when you plug the ethernet shield into the arduino, the ISCP pins on the arduino board
are not used.
Any info would be appreciated.
