Using the Bricktronics Megashield

After you’ve built your Bricktronics Megashield, there are a few things you need to know before getting started!


Jumpers only go on the banks of pins behind the four sensor ports on the right edge of the MegaShield. Placing them anywhere else on the Bricktronics Megashield may break things. The settings for the jumpers depend on which sensors you’re using in those ports. Details are available at the Bricktronics sensors and examples pages, but we have summarized the jumper settings in the image below:

You can continue reading about the Bricktronics Megashield, but now that you’ve built the shield, you can install the library and try out some examples! The library and installation instructions are at the Bricktronics downloads page. Demos are on the Bricktronics examples page, and each one has instructions, code, and a video!
