Hi there, has anyone seen or built their own shield that has selectable IO pins? For instance, one that you can “jumper” an IO pin to a specific input/output on the shield - and I’m not talking about a wire poked into the header
Since the shields I’m doing are specific for my application I don’t think that it really matters, but it was something I did think about. I’ve seen shields with a spare set of pads inside the headers, and you could then solder a jumper wire between a pad for the specific connection you’re working with and the appropriate header pad; but that seems pretty permanent. I can’t really imagine needing to move my IOs around (I’m probably talking about 8 IOs) so I may well just route the connections where I want from the outset.
If you have come across something like this, or have some ideas how might make sense to do this with .1" headers or similar, let me know!
