3.-volt Arduinos are a poor choice to use with our sensors. Our sensors require 5.0 volt power supply in almost all cases. The 3-volt Arduino Due, for example, is only 3.3-volt. Other examples are are Fio, Pro Mini, and some versions of LilyPad, Mega, Pro, Pro Mini, Arduino 101, and Genuino.
Here is some information about the Arduino Due from the SparkFun web site:
Because of the limitations of system voltage imposed by the Atmel SAM3X8E, Arduino shields that are based on the 5v models won’t work properly. All the shields that fully implement the Arduino R3 layout are compatible straight away (like the Arduino WiFi shield and Ethernet Shield) but other shields might not be compatible. Be careful when you’re plugging stuff in!
Note: Unlike other Arduino boards, the Arduino Due board runs at 3.3V. The maximum voltage that the I/O pins can tolerate is 3.3V. Providing higher voltages, like 5V to an I/O pin could damage the board.
Vernier distributes this board:
SparkFun® RedBoard with cable (ARD-RED)
To connect Vernier sensors to the Arduino we distribute this shield:
Vernier Arduino® Interface Shield (BT-ARD)
If you need more connecting lines and more computing power, consider the Arduino Mega as an alternative to the Arduino Due.
