  • Two new pins are placed near the RESET pin. One is the IOREF that allow the shields to adapt to the voltage provided from the board. The other is a not connected and is reserved for future purposes
  • Works with all existing shields but also compatible with new shields that require the additional pins.

Never had an issue

I prefer the SainSmart Arduino boards (especially this one) over the others I have tried. I have never had an issue with a SainSmart board. I also love the reasonable price for the US stocked units. I have never had to wait long to receive them.

Well-built!

A well-built board. I was doing a project on a budget, this definitely is the best component for me. Although it is not an official Arduino board, I still like it as long as it do the trick. And it has been verified that it worked well in my project.
