The board comes pre-assembled and tested from our factory. We include optional headers for breadboard use. Or you can wire the board directly into your project.


Installing the optional headers is a simple process and takes just a few minutes:

Position the Header

Cut the header strip to length if necessary and place it in the breadboard (long pins down!). Position the breakout board over the header.

And Solder!

Solder each pin to assure a good electrical connection. If you are new to soldering, check out the Adafruit Guide to Excellent Soldering.


Wiring to the Arduino is simple as well. Just power, ground and a signal wire:

Basic Wiring:

  • GND -> Arduino GND
  • IO -> Arduino GPIO pin (The example code uses pin 8)
Then connect a 4.7K ohm pullup resistor (included) from IO to 5v.

Wiring Multiple DS2413 Breakouts

To add more breakouts, just connect more to the same GND and IO pin. Additional pullup resistors are not required.
