Grove - Base Shield is the new version of Electronic Brick Shield. The Basic Shield is compatible with Seeeduino v3.0 (168p and 328p), and Arduino UNO and Duemilanove. All the Grove modules are connected on to the Grove- Base Shield, which marks the starting of grove journey.
The base shield routes all the pins from the controller (e.g. Arduino) into 16 Grove ports which gives instant, simple and solder- free connections.There are 16 Grove ports on the base shield, which can be divided into three different functional areas: digital ports(8), analog ports(4), I2C(4).
Digital Ports: As photo shows there are have 8 digital ports, what are equivalent to digital pins 0 to through 9 on the Arduino Uno. Normally, they are used when reading a digital sensor that only outputs 0 or 1, or turning on or off an actuator.
Analog Ports: On the left-hand side are four Grove ports for taking analog reading. Analog sensors can return readings ranging from 0 to 1023. Compared with digital sensors that only return 0 or 1, analog readings are more detailed and precise.
I2C: Ports Below the digital ports are four I2C Grove ports. I2C is a low-speed bus protocol that transfers data via two wire: SCL and SDA. SCL is the clock line that synchronises data transfer over the I2C bus, and SDA is data line
