Use an Arduino, save a penguin!

A common question about the ExtenderShields we've been getting is asking whether the Arduino can be installed underneath the top OR bottom, left OR right. The answer is yes!

Just remember, on the DoubleTall ExtenderShield, the bottom Arduino area is rotated 180 degrees from the top. It's designed that way to allow future BackPack designs to exit wires cleanly.

As a suggestion, it's helpful to have something under the "other" area, like stand-offs,

or a Lithium Backpack (includes stand-offs) to support your device when it's on the table.
