Centipede Shield V2


This product is excellent, it does exactly what the description says and the libraries work well. I used this board to build a chess board. My centipede is connected directly to each of the 64 reed switches which detect the prescence (or not) of pieces. Although I could have done this by scanning, the centipede board simplifies the connections and the coding. Because each port has pull up resistors, I need no extra parts and because it connects by ribbon cable the wiring is simple. Then in software I can directly address each square. I run this on an Arduino uno, with a few directly soldered wires. Any chance of a port of the libraries for use in Python for use on the Raspberry Pi? The PI only has a few pins and this shield would liberate it.

Thanks Max
