Lightuino Shield description:
Multiple LED driver.
Can be used either as a shield to an existing Arduino, or stand-alone by the addition of an ATmega328 MCU.
Lightuino Shield specification:
The biggest change is the addition of the ATMEGA CPU, clock, etc logic, making the Lightuino a standalone board!
Of course, you can still use it as a shield, either WITH the ATMEGA populated or WITHOUT (if the ATMEGA is not populated, it MUST be used as a shield of course). And you can stack them. If it is stacked, it ought to let you do some really interesting distributed computing stuff.
By integrating the ATMEGA on-board, the total cost is a lot less, since you don’t need the Arduino board. And its a lot smaller too!
