The Ground / Voltage / Signal standard is very popular, and our SB-GVS shield lets you easily tap these sensors into your Arduino!
You know servos? They have 3-wire connections: Ground / Voltage / Signal. This standard layout has been adopted by many manufacturers for peripherals and sensors. Look specifically at Phidget sensor modules, and practically any hobby-servo on the market.
The SB-GVS shield lets you easily interface this sort of device to your Arduino's 12 digital and 6 analog I/O ports! And it also features a I2C port for peripheral networking (at the sacrifice of 2 analog I/O ports, which share the same pins).
When looking at possible sensors, look for the interface required. If it says "Interfaces with analog port" or "Interfaces with digital I/O" or similar, you'll most likely be able to interface it to your GVS shield's analog or digital ports.
Note: Some sensors are may be 3.3V compatible only. You must assure they are 5V tolerant to work with this shield!
