Hi guys, I have a shield stacking question that boggles me, being a total noob. I’m basically trying to stack 2 shields above an UNO:
(driving a linear actuator that peaks at 9A, and powered separately by a 12V power supply) — on top of:
The protoshield was soldered to get power from the 5v and GND of the arduino UNO underneath it, but now that i’m sandwiching a motor shield between it, my question is: How do i power the protoshield (top shield)?
I’m fried components using the VIN previously, and a bit wary to go down that path, and I cannot stack my motor shield on top of the protoshield as the stacking pins are offset on that particular board.
Can anyone help please?
Huge thanks in advance!
