How to cut traces and wire jumpers on Arduino Shield PCB
February 11, 2014 6:28 PM Subscribe
I'm a total hardware engineering noob who's getting into Arduino development. I have an Electric Imp connected to the Arduino via a shield
, which works great. However, I've added another shield that conflicts with the pins that are used by the Electric Imp for software serial IO. The Imp shield says that I can cut a trace and wire a jumper to use hardware serial on two open ports instead. I've never done this before – can someone give explicit steps as to what I need to do?

- This thread
mentions what is needed, but I don't know how to read a schematic.
- Someone has done what I think is the jumper part here
but no mention of cutting the traces. It's a very similar project to mine.
