Alamode is an Arduino compatible development board that extends that lovin' feeling to the Raspberry Pi. With Raspberry Pi ‘A la Mode, you can write a program on the Pi in any language you want, to control or monitor your Arduino application, making Internet integration and control super easy. In addition you can even program the AlaMode directly from the Pi. Or, turning things around, think of Raspberry Pi as a highly capable ethernet and display shield for the Alamode!
Fully compatible with Arduino, including Arduino shields
Plugs in to Raspberry-Pi GPIO header
Voltage safe – Bidirectional translator automagically converts between 3.3V for Raspberry-Pi and 5V for Arduino
