Assembly instructions for Amarino 3.0 DIY shield


Step 13- Solder stackable header

This post gives you the idea for assembling the Amarino shield. To get full details about this shield,  CLICK HERE.  When you buy the kit package, you will get the following PCB. The PCB clearly shows the pin and component names, so, it should help you to get idea of connections of components to Arduino.  For example, LDR is connected to A1 and RGB LED is connected is to D3, D5 and D6 and you can see those pins labeled on the PCB.


– Start with 220 Ohm resistors. Solder all the 220 Ohm resistors.

Step 1- solder all the 220R resistors
Depending upon the types of LEDs, the value of resistors may vary. The LEDs that come with the shield package work perfectly with 220 Ohm. It should also work with 100 Ohm and 330 Ohm resistors.

Solder 10K Ohm resistor. This resistor connects with LDR. Check out the schematic of Amarino Shield 3.0

Step 2- Solder 10K resistor

– Solder all the 3mm white LEDs (Q1- Q8).

Step 3- Solder all the 3mm LEDs

– Solder the 2pcs of 3mm LED (Qs and Qs’). Fix the light dependent resistor (LDR) also.

Step 4- Solder 2pcs 3mm LED and light dependent resistor

– Solder LM35 temperature sensor. Check out the experiment with LM35.
Step 5- Solder LM35 temperature sensor

– Solder the tactile(reset) switch

Step 6- Solder tactile switch

– Solder 5mm white LED. This LED is there for sensor graph Amarino experiment.

Step 7- Solder 5mm LED

– Solder RGB LED. This RGB LED is used for multicolor lamp Amarino experiment.

 Step 8- Solder RGB LED

– Solder 16 pin DIL socket.

Step 9- Solder 16 pin IC socket

– Stack the CD4094 chip over the DIL socket.

 Step 10- Stack CD4094 chip over the IC socket

– Solder 2pcs of 1 P DIP switch. One switch controls Bluetooth module and the other controls the CD4094 chip. Check out the schematic of Amarino Shield 3.0

Step 11- Solder 2pcs 1P DIP switchesAmarino shield 3

– Solder the 4 pin and 6 pin female headers for Bluetooth modules. The Amarino shield supports 3 different Bluetooth adapters, check out here.

Step 12- 4 pin and 6 pin female header

– Finally, solder the stackable header and your shield is ready to use.

Step 13- Solder stackable header

After assembling all the components, stack the Amarino shiled over your Arduino and try the following experiments:
