I have a project in mind (well actually I have quite a few :)) and it will need an Analog input and 2 Digital outputs. This project (or the other I am planning) would be my first foray (albeit rather rudimentary) from the from the “safety” of the Gadgeteer, so I want to understand my board a bit better.
Yes, you could use pin 5 as an analog input and pins 3+4 as digital outputs.
Yes, you should be able to do that. You’ll effectively be creating an “A&Y” Gadgeteer module, enabling you to use all of the pins on socket 9.
Yes, you should be able to do that. Please note that those pins are shared with the “I” pins on sockets 1, 3, and 4…so you won’t be able to use any “I” sockets if you use socket 10 pins 8/9 as GPIOs. Also note that the I2C pins have 2.2 kilohm pullups…so your GPIOs will be pulled up by default.
Sorry Mike, I read two lines in mhectorgato’s first post and thought he was saying that socket 9 was also listed as an ‘I’ socket (and accidentally referred to pins 8+9 as pins 9+10). I have corrected my post.
