This SRAM Tinyshield allows you to add memory to your TinyDuino projects that can read and write at a virtually instant rate. Built around the Microchip 23LC1024, this board allows for some extra processing memory when your Arduino device is powered on. Since it doesn't hold information through power cycles, you don't have to worry about erasing anything.
The SRAM TinyShield is low power and works through the SPI interface. It has 1Mbit of storage. Example code is provided to make it simple to add SRAM support to your projects.

- 05 - SPI_CS: This signal is the SPI chip select for the SRAM.
- 11 - MOSI: This signal is the serial SPI data out of the TinyDuino and into the SRAM.
- 12 - MISO: This signal is the serial SPI data out of the SRAM and into the TinyDuino.
- 13 - SCLK: This signal is the serial SPI clock out of the TinyDuino and into the SRAM.
