chipKIT WF32 board w/ UNO protoboard

Question

Posted (edited)

Hey guys, quick question. I saw the "old" WF32 was UNO shield compatible. However, I've seen a few posts stating certain boards are not compatible. I'm looking to use an UNO protoboard to mount an RTC, there shouldn't be any issues correct? If Digilent has a protoboard for the WF32 I haven't been able to find one.

Hi @cawy7,

 Certain shields are not compatible due to the WF32 and the shield using the same pins. If your protoboard and RTC do not use a pin that the WF32 is using then it should compatible. I would use the schematic available on the resource center for the WF32 here to see if there is a conflict of pins being used.

thank you,

Jon

Cool, the protoshield is just a passthrough for easier mounting of the RTC so I can have screw terminals and it be compact. I think it'll work fine I just need to check the pinouts to see what they are really to on the WF32 and not use the markings on the protoshield
