I am trying to connect my MKR IMU Shield to my MKR1000 by placing the IMU shield in the MKR1000. When I do this, however, the Arduino IDE and Simulink are unable to find the port that my Arduino is connected to.

However, when my IMU shield is not connected to my MKR1000, the port can be found properly, and the code can be uploaded to the board. When I plug my IMU shield into my MKR1000 after the code has uploaded, my project crashes with an error.

Any ideas on how I can correct this so that I can able to connect to my MKR1000 when the IMU shield is plugged in? Thank you for all your help.

  • @Juraj Also, when the shield is plugged into the board, the shield becomes very hot. Could this also be a sign of a damaged shield? – tennis25 Nov 2 '19 at 19:38
  • a basic question: the pin labels match on MKR and shield? – Juraj Nov 2 '19 at 20:22
  • @Juraj Yes, the pins match up when I plug the shield into the MKR. Thank you for your help! – tennis25 Nov 2 '19 at 20:39
