If you get this sheild. Be certain to download and view the Connection Diagram before you lay out anything. This board has a lot of connected pads in places you might not suspect.
Be sure your using gauge 18 or 20 wires for fitting into the screw terminals. They are itty bitty and the screws are even smaller. I have to use my smallest screw driver to operate them.
Lastly if you are trying to do any signal conditioning between the Arduino pins and the screw posts. You’ll have to cut the traces between the screw pins and the Arduino pins.
I’ve love most everything I’ve ever bought from Sparkfun, but this board is not one of them. Maybe they’ll come up with a rev 2 that will be a little more real estate useful.

I’m quite curious about this product, I can think of a number of things I might use for it. But I’m unclear what kind of baud rate this is capable of, when you’re trying to sample analog ports, digital ports and maybe output some data as well. Seems like you might be dealing with fairly modest values.
