           If you follow our PyroElectro articles, then you likely read about our construction and review of Club Jameco's 8x8x8 LED Cube kit. Well we're at it again, taking a look through a different kit, the Arduino Waveform Generator Shield. This shield provides an all-in-one DIY style function generator for low frequencies and the best part is you get to build it yourself!
           In this article we will go through the process of building this Arduino Waveform Generator Shield whilst simultaneously reviewing the bugs and features found during the construction and usage. This article will focus mainly on the hardware side of things since the firmware was pre-written for the Arduino.
