There are lots of Arduino-compatible shields. Many/most of them work with the Netduino. Some of them require C# drivers, some do not. A few community members have asked for a list of tested/compatible shields, components, etc. Let's make that list here. There are literally thousands of components out there, so this will serve as a very brief introductory list--but let's not worry about making it a really long introductory list :) A few notes: 1. Please link to the manufacturer's website where possible--for details on the accessory 2. If you've built a project, please link to it (or its post) showcasing your use of the accessory 3. If the accessory requires C# drivers, please link to them here... Chris

Here are a few Adafruit shields that we've been successfully using in the lab:

Adafruit proto shield
http://www.adafruit....&products_id=51

Adafruit GPS logger shield (GPS connectivity + SD card)
http://www.adafruit....&products_id=98
NOTE: SD card feature requires Netduino v4.1.1 (Alpha 1) or newer firmware.

Adafruit data logging shield (SD card + real-time clock)
http://www.adafruit....products_id=243
NOTE: there are drivers for this RTC (if someone has a link, we'll add it here).

We've also used the Wingshield Screwshield on projects (to create screw-tightened terminal connections for thin wires or more "permanent" connections)... http://wingshieldindustries.com/

Lets see, the Sparkfun Protoshield works fine. So does their GPS shield (in "DLINE" mode, not UART). I haven't tried the XBee shield yet mainly because I can't stand stacking shields.

I have the sparkfun proto, xbee, gps shields, all work fine.

Also the Seeed studio sd card shield works fine with the 4.1.1 alpha firmware.

I have the SparkFUN Joystick shield which requires two mod to work.
1. The 3.3VDC needs to be jumpered to AREF
2. The 5VDC line to the Joystick needs to be cut and replace with a 3.3VDC supply

This shield here seems to work as well:

http://www.seeedstud...tml?cPath=48_49

It lets you plug in 3 wire cables to do the LEDs, piezo, pot, title, etc sensors/switches.

Sparkfun microSD card shield works (with the 4.1.1 beta firmware) with D8 and D10 connected together (which shouldn't be required once the netduino allows specifying a card detect pin)

The shield from Seeeduino works (as stated above)... I finally figured out how to make the LCD work too... http://forums.netdui...-seeeduino-lcd/

Today LED's, tomorrow, the world!!! Well, OK, maybe servos.

We've released a new shield, the Quick Shield, which is similar to the Screwshield but uses spring-clamp terminals that do not require any tools like screw terminals do. Fits very nicely on a Netduino, and we even have a picture!

Here is the C# code to get it to work with the Netduino.

Not a shield but I need it so some one else may need one as well http://www.sparkfun....products_id=133, RS232 shifter. It converts from digital to RS232 sufficiently to work with a PC. Just don't forget to use 3.3 Vdc for VCC or you could spend a whole afternoon troubleshoot the hardware ( I wonder how he knew that? :rolleyes: )

Well when it comes to prototype shields, there is not much that can go wrong, but thought I would add this one anyway. NKC Electronics has http://www.nkcelectr...hield-kit.html. The only caveat is that you don't want to install the 6-Pin ICSP pass thru. Itdoesn't work with the Netduino anyway since it's not populated B)

The SparkFun MP3 Shield is compatible. http://www.sparkfun....roducts_id=9736 When combined with the Adafruit Data Logger SD Shield: http://www.adafruit....products_id=243 And when passing small byte arrays (remember maximum RAM on Netduino is 60k and that the 4.1.1.0 firmware is needed for SD) from the SD card to the MP3 shield, it works rather well, if only a little jittery. There's sample code for sending an MP3 file's byte arrays here: https://www.ghielect...hp?topic=2738.0 It's not intended for the Netduino, but replacing the following pins does the trick: BSYNC -> Pins.GPIO_PIN_D2 DREQ -> Pins.GPIO_PIN_D3 RESET -> [Any unused pin?] CS -> Pins.GPIO_PIN_D9 NOTE: I didn't really know what pin to assign for "reset", but it doesn't seem to be necessary in order to work. The volume is set to the value "1" in the code, but it really should be a hex value (see the spec sheet on SparkFun's product page).

Just saw this on the "Make Magazine Daily": http://bit.ly/8YsvsJ Might work with Netduino?

PoE?!? That's pretty cool. It will probably work (although it never hurts to double-check with the vendor to make sure they support incoming 3.3V signals).

Add the following Wiz5100 ethernet shield http://www.seeedstud...l?cPath=101_102 also available from http://www.nkcelectr...eeedstudio.html Like the latest Arduino Ethernet shield it requires an ISPC connection. Sorry about that, I found the schematic and it will work without the ISPC. There are three zero ohm resister used as jumpers that just have to be moved to convert from ISP to DI MOSI. Duh! :unsure:
