Pocket Shield is equipped with a built-in rechargeable battery that can supply power for CyberPi and provides 2-pin and 3-pin interfaces that can be used to connect servos, LED strips, and motors, which significantly improves the extensibility of CyberPi.
- Built-in rechargeable Li-ion battery, used to supply power for CyberPi
- Two DC motor ports, used to connect and drive DC motors
- Two digital servo ports, used to connect and drive servos or LED strips
- One main control board port, allowing you to easily connect Pocket Shield to CyberPi
- Supporting mBlock 5 programming, which is intended for users of all ages, including those without any programming experience
- Supporting Python programming, for which the
cyberpilibrary is provided
4 hours（ in general application scenarios, just for reference）
Serial communication: between the main control board and extension board
Digital signals: at the cigital servo port
PWM signals: at the DC motor port
- Self-discharge occurs in the lithium-ion battery. If you store mBot2 Shield with the battery voltage lower than 3.6 V for a long time, the battery will be over-discharged and its internal structure may be damaged, which reduces the endurance of the battery. Therefore, to store mBot2 Shield for a long time while keeping the battery intact, you need to charge the battery once every three to six months to 3.8–3.9 V (the best coltage for storage is 3.85 V), which allows the discharge depth of 40% to 60%.
- Store mBot2 Shield at 4℃ to 35℃ in a dry place or keep it away from moisture through packaging.
- Keep it away from heat or direct sunlight.
After a new firmware version is released, you can connect Pocket Shield to mBlock 5 through CyberPi to view and update its firmware. For details about how to update the firmware, see "How to update the firmware?"
You can use mBlock 5 to program Pocket Shield. mBlock 5 provides two editors, namely the block-based graphical editor (the default editor, referred to as mBlock 5) and Python editor (referred to as mBlock-Python Editor).
For details about programming, see "Programming Software."
