  • Forgive me, but I am new to the Arduino. Is this whole “Sheild” business simply another word for daughter card? In my mind the core Arduino (Mega in my case) is like the motherboard. Any thing else you add is a daughter board (or Shield?) Correct?
    If that is true, then what are the limitations of how many shields you can add? Simply physical limitations? Or if you have the space, or wire you can add more?
    Thanks for your time.

No public wish lists :(
