The BAM&DICE DUE shield
The BAM&DICE DUE shield is the advanced version of the BAM shield. With a additional WLAN adapter it is possible to control a 3d printer with a mobile device Designed for Arduino DUE it offes the full flexibility in +3.3V systems with many DICE boards
The connection scheme of the corresponding DICE-Connector allows fast data
exchange via RS232, I2C and SPI. Also several IOs are available to digitally
control a variety of functions and receive status and error signals.
While older electronics lack in the maximum available power and the number of connections,
now the BAM-Shield is able to fill this gap.
- Supply voltage: +8V - +32V
- Logic-Voltage: +5V
- Max. prim. current: 15A
- Max. sec. current: 15A
Please consider that the values may change with the used DICE-Boards and extensions.
Also important: For use of supply voltages higher than 20V, remove Diode D1 and power the Arduino separately!
To get deeper knowledge, please refer to the manual.

Great thanks to Johnny Russell and all others,
which developed the RAMPS up to version 1.41
and released the hardware with the GPLv3-License.
Have fun with the project.
