Extend your Pi!
Want to connect some sensors to the Raspberry Pi? The I-CubeX PiShield is an open source add-on board for Raspberry Pi devices that adds analog input and support for 5V I2C sensors. It is designed to match the exact dimensions of the Pi Zero, but also works with all other models of the Raspberry Pi. It adds 8 channels of analog input for connecting with I-CubeX or any 3-pin analog sensor that operates on 5V, as well as digital I-CubeX and other I2C input and output devices (such as LCD displays, etc).
Works with all Raspberry Pi models
8 Analog input ports for sensors
4 Digital input ports for I2C sensors
2 Exposed headers for GPIO pins
Safely use 5V sensors with the Pi’s 3.3V levels
