MAKER SERVO/EXPANSION SHIELD Power up

Sometimes when building an electronic system, you might need to add other input and output modules such as a Servo Motor, but these modules might require more power than what the Maker can supply.

The Maker Servo/Expansion Shield makes it easy to connect these modules to the Maker board; the shield works as a bridge between the Maker and the other modules and allows you to supply them with an external power supply.

The Maker Servo/Expansion Shield is compatible with Maker V0.0 and Maker V1.0.

More power, more action.
