LegoShield Updates

Sean and I are currently working on improving our Lego Compatible Shield.
Here's an early look at the PCB.

This version will sport:
  • Voltage jumpers rather than switches. I noticed the switches I used on the last version were way underrrated.
  • Can type Capacitor for battery stabilization
  • NXT Header for connecting to the mindSensors NXT host cable. This will make it easy for anyone to connect their arduino to the NXT Sensors.
  • Reset Button Brought to top
  • 5V and 0V Rails next to the Analog In bank
  • BlueSmirf Header for Bluetooth Connectivity (not shown in photo)
  • Pulldown Resistor on the Enable Line
  • VRaw will be connected to external power (don't reverse the leads, folks!)
  • adjustments to the Lego Hole Sizes
Hopefully we'll be ready to send them off for fabrication soon!
