In this article read about how to build an AVR ISP Shield for Arduino. phenoptix writes:
This Instructable is for the build instructions for our new AVR ISP Shield Kit for Arduino. Its development owes a great deal to Instructables and our own community (particularly Nick!) and I hope to explain some of that along the way.
Let me start by saying to program an AVR chip with an Arduino you don’t need a shield or even a crystal if you’re programming Arduino bootloaders. But if you plan on doing it more than once a shield is going to save you some headaches as setting up a breadboard each time and then worrying about debugging is a pain…

The 8-Pin Programming Shield allows you to program ATtiny series chips using the Arduino itself as the programmer. In other words, you plug this into your Arduino and then you can easily program 8-pin chips. These small microcontrollers can then be incorporated into any project that you want. Follows are instructions for assembling your own 8-Piin Programming Shield.

The Arduino OBDCAN Shield connects Arduino board to CAN OBD-II compliant car, light truck, or motorcycle.
- ISO15765-4 (CAN) protocol
- Arduino R3 form factor
- Stacking headers for expansion and connection to LCD
- Joystick control for menu navigation
- Provides operating voltage for the Arduino board from OBD connector
- Serial port operating voltage either 3.3V or 5V, driven by IOREF pin
- Standard DB-9 subconnector for use with OBD-II cable.

Olympia, WA, April 29, 2013, Olympia Circuits introduces the Arno Shield to expand their line of products for new Arduino users. The Arno Shield contains all the components necessary to learn Arduino programming when plugged into an Arduino compatible board without any messy wires. The original Arno Learning Kit was introduced last year and received a great response as an innovative approach to learning the basics of electronics and Arduino. The shield provides another way for new users to dive into the world of Arduino and breaks down barriers to learning about microcontrollers.
The Arno Shield will be available for purchase at olympiacircuits.com on May 2nd.
The Arno Shield shares the same features of the Arno, but in a familiar shield form factor. Bring your own Arduino compatible board, drop in the shield and start learning to write sketches.
The Arno Shield comes with the well regarded book “Learn Arduino with the Arno” which gives step-by-step instructions for more than forty projects. All the components for the projects are built into the Arno Shield, so no wiring is necessary, just plug and play. The Arno shield, like the original Arno, is fully compatible with the Arduino programming language and integrated development environment.
To allow for a wide range of learning projects, the shield includes the following devices:
- Four green LEDs
- One RGB LED
- One infrared LED
- Two momentary pushbutton switches for digital inputs
- One thumbwheel potentiometer to introduce analog measurements and controls
- One piezo element to create tones and measure vibrations
- One phototransistor to detect infrared and visible light
- An I2C digital temperature sensor to introduce between-device digital communication
Users of the Arno have enjoyed the ability to dive right in to programming without messing with wires and small parts. Like the original Arno, the Arno Shield and an Arduino compatible board make a good travel kit that wonʼt get you hung up in security.

This Voice shield can be useful to integrate voice messages in alarm systems, to implement generic I/O controls in home automation or even in home security applications: something like playing an alert when a person or a vehicle approaches any given protected area. The use cases are many and limited only by your imagination!
While this shield can operate stand-alone, it can be better managed through and SPI interface: by connecting this with Arduino it can take control of the speech synthesis.

The idea behind this post is to bring together some robot designs and transform them in a new device with new hardware and standard software (arduino of course) and so easier to use. These robots have three things in common: a mechanical structure, the hardware and the software. While the mechanical part is necessarily different, we wanted to understand if there was a hardware board that could be common, with a unique development system. The choice, quite obviously, has the Arduino board, which with its development environment is perfect to create similar projects.

One of the most interesting shield that you can mount on the Arduino platform is certainly the ethernet shield, because enable numerous networking applications such as remote control of systems and users, web access and publication of data, and more yet, the simplicity of finding and integrating open-source libraries on Arduino IDE does the rest. The usefulness of LAN connectivity has meant that the market would respond by offering different ethernet shield, first of all the original Arduino Ethernet Shield, which was accompanied by the good shield by Seeed Studio, both of these circuits are based on the chipset WIZnet W5100, allow multiple socket connections and can work at 100 Mbps

IRVINE, CA — June 19, 2012 — Open Source RF, a new venture dedicated to serving Arduino users by making high-quality, creative products for the Maker, DIY and Open Source communities, today announced it is releasing a plug and play wireless Shield for Arduino.
The Wireless Inventors Shield makes any Arduino project wireless instantly even in high-traffic areas. Using a reliable wireless RF module, the Shield allows users to easily send and receive error-free data between two or more Arduino boards.
Arduino is an open source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It is intended for artists, designers, hobbyists and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.
The Wireless Inventors Shield has been tested at ranges in excess of 500 feet (150 meters); it is plug and play and error free, featuring built-in forward error correction and data recovery so users receive only cleaned and cyclic redundancy checked (CRC) verified data; and it is simple to use in that inputted data is wirelessly transmitted then cleanly received on the opposite end.

The Amicus18 board is physically compatible with Arduino shields. However, the default PIC processor on the board is a 3.3 V type, which could be an issue while interfacing some of the shields that strictly operate at +5V. As a support to the users of the Amicus18 development board, Gevo Electronics from The Netherlands has designed a special shield, named AmiPIC18 LCD. Although the name says it is a LCD shield, but in real it provides a lot more features, which we will be exploring in this article.
