Can I add Motor Shield v2.3 to Mega + GShield v5?

by ss2432 on Mon Jul 27, 2020 3:21 pm

I need to control more than 3 stepper motors for my projects.
So I got Motor Shield v2.3 for additional stepper motors.

It seems like I cannot stack Motor Shield on top of Mega2560 + GShield v5.

I wonder if I can add Motor Shield v2.3 to Mega2560 + GShield v5 with jumper cables.
Running both GShield and Motor Shield on one Mega2560.

If it's not going to work, then what would be the best way to add additional stepper motors with the motor shield?
I was also considering to have communication between UNO/MotorShieldv2.3 and MEGA/GShield.

Please let me know if jumper connection would work between GShield and Motor Shield. Thanks!

If you build the motor shield with stacking headers, you can stack the G-Shield on top of the motor shield.
