Introducing Yun Shield–the most powerful shields for Arduino Board

New product


Yun Shield is one of the most powerful shields for Arduino Board. Yun Shield is designed to solve the Internet connectivity and storage issue for Arduino Board. It provides a linux system, WiFi, Ethernet and USB (can used for camara, storage, 3G etc) to Arduino.

Yun Shield runs Open Source OpenWrt system (Same system as runs in Arduino Yun) and it is fully compatible with Arduino IDE v1.5.4 or later. Yun Shield is the ideally choice for Arduino Projects which require various internet connections and more storage.

Basically, Yun Shield + Leonardo equally to the official Arduino Yun, but Yun Shield is more flexible because it can works with other Arduino board such as UnoDuemilanoveMega etc. And Yun Shield use external wifi antenna which provides stability and possibility for various environments.

  • Hi

    I just received this shield for Christmas. The link light isn’t turning on when connected via RJ45 when connected to the network. Also, the wireless SSID isn’t showing up.

    Is this unit defective, or is there something I’m missing?


    • Hi, John, can your the USB you use to connect the YUN shield to the PC, if the USB works well, the MCU of the shild is all right, if it is not the probleum of the usb, or the shield, i want to know your operating steps so that i can detect the problesm.
