Throw Away The Bread Board
Forget using a bread board to test out your code.
It's messy, error prone and time consuming.
How many times have you put an LED into your breadboard, then by accident knock it just enough to break the electrical contact but you were unable to see it.
So you spend hours spinning around in a circle trying to understand where the problem is.
Dr. Duino solves that problem for you!
By combining the most commonly used elements into a breakout shield, you'll always have access to all of your standard electronic components.
The best part? The parts wont come loose so you wont have to pull your hair out trying to isolate between firmware or hardware issues.
BUT, Dr.Duino can do more for you. Come take a look!
Perfect Hardware Simulator
Are you waiting on hardware to be delivered so you can start coding?
With Dr.Duino, you can start coding right NOW!
Which SAVES you development TIME!
Maybe you need to measure an analog signal from another piece of hardware which you don't have access to.
Simulate it using the built in potentiometers and start testing.
When your real hardware arrives, you can be assured it will be plug and play!
Don't Block My View!
Part of what makes developing with Arduino so awesome is the ability to stack one shield on top of another.
However, as soon as you do that, your access and view to the shield below is blocked.
When you put Dr.Duino on your last level of your shields, you'll still be able to see what's going on directly underneath it.
Imagine how much time you'll save by being able to keep your Arduino stack together and still be able to access all of your hardware!
No More Unconventional Tactics
Whenever you have more than one shield stacked on top of one another, debugging in between layers is difficult if not impossible.
You either have to resort to constantly un-stacking and re-stacking your project, or attempt to separate the layers just enough to jam a probe in-between.
When unstacking and restacking, the chances of bending or breaking your pins increases.
If you try to separate the layers just enough to attach a probe, intermittent connections between the Arduino or shields increases.
Which only adds to the confusion of what is wrong with your Arduino project.
Dr.Duino solves those issues for you!
By placing Dr.Duino in-between your shields, you still have access to all the I/O.
All while not over stressing the pins and without creating intermittent connection issues.
Built In Rs-232 Support
RS-232 was and sometimes still is the backbone of communications with the outside world.
With plenty of USB to RS-232 converters on the market, you could just use that to establish communications.
BUT every manufacture makes their USB converters differently.
Each one with its unique timing quirk which can cause problems with your communications.
So eliminate the problem before it happens and use Dr.Duino's built in RS-232 port.
5 LED's: Connected to PWM pins
4 Switches: 2 pulled up, 2 pulled down 6 Potentiometers: 10k Ohm
External Reset Button: Which will not get covered by the shield above
RS-232: Perfect for equipment that still uses RS-232
1 Piezo Buzzer: Connected to a PWM pin for easy tone creation.
Ground Points: Easy access to 4 dedicated ground points.
Power: Easy access to the Arduino Uno's internal voltages 5V and 3.3V.
