Arduino Mega 2560 Newbie

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

I know it is a silly question, but it is my first encounter with Arduino. 

So, I was watching few youtube (SimVim explanations and demonstrations) and I noticed all are using the Breadboard, but non is showing how to connect the Switches, Encoders Rotary Switches Etc to the actual Arduino Board, the Breadbord got  row dedicated to the GRD but the Mega got only 4 of those Ground Pins, so what do you do when more than 4 Grd are needed ?

Any help will be highly appreciated

 

Cheers

You just connect them all together and plug them into one GND hole. You can do it with a bit of soldering or no doubt you can get some kind of screw terminal connector block as an alternative.
