The 96Boards Sensors Mezzanine adapter makes it simple and easy to connect sensors and devices to any 96Boards-compatible base board. With it you can connect your favourite Grove modules and Arduino compatible shields and interface to software running on the 96Boards baseboard. It provides everything you need to start experimenting and prototyping on the 96Boards platform.
On the board you will find sockets for 18 Grove modules, an Arduino-compatible shield socket, and two SPI headers. It also includes an ATMega328 microcontroller which can be programmed from the Arduino IDE and will run most Arduino UNO sketches unchanged. The shield connector and 10 of the Grove sockets are controlled by the microcontroller, while the remaining 8 Grove sockets are controlled directly by the baseboard. This makes it a flexible prototyping platform which supports both direct control of devices from application software, and offload to a microcontroller. It also provides a USB-UART interface to access the baseboard’s serial console.
The Sensors board attached on top of a 96Boards CE or EE edition board using the 40pin low-speed expansion connector.
Please note: A 96Boards baseboard is not included.
This board has been tested and works with the Qualcomm Dragonboard 410c and the LeMaker HiKey boards.

Hi John, You should use Arduino UNO, and you need to do some configuration. For more detail, please check here: https://www.96boards.org/blog/use-arduino-ide-sensors-mezzanine-board-linux/
