What is it?
Fino is a converter shield for 3.3 Volt Arduino boards. It converts between the Raspberry Pi pinout and the Arduino pinout.
We developed the Fino board so that users could plug our PIF FPGA board into a 3.3 Volt Arduino or into one of the many boards which use the Arduino pinout.
You can plug a PIF board into a Fino shield, then plug the Fino shield onto a 3.3 Volt Arduino or similar.
What you get
- one Fino converter shield circuit board
- one 26-way boxed header, matching the 26-way Raspberry Pi xpansion connector
- one 36-way strip of pin headers
Fino is supplied as a kit of parts. The headers have to be soldered onto the circuit board, as described in the manual.
A note on ordering and shipping: Because of the cost of shipping it may be best to order a Fino board as part of a larger order.
Please note that the Fino board is designed for users who are familiar with electronic design and debugging, and familiar with the usual safety precautions when working with electronic equipment.
