THANKS! Good things come in time and I guess the time has come.   smiley

Earlier this week I was able to reach the manufacturer and they were very responsive at supplying the V6 schematic and confirming that the photo above was not a misplaced part but a "dual" footprint that can accept multiple package types. Able to resolve my problem once cocuments were available. Thanks Gianluca.

Still waiting for Arduino team and SparkFun to update their information.

Sorry about that; we'll get the latest documentation posted ASAP.

...I'm guessing that 10 days is not yet in the domain of "ASAP", Still waiting for some doc updates.

Here's hoping... Thanks

Where can I find a schematic for newest Ethernet Shield?
http://www.smartprj.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=58
It appears to be "newer" than what is described at the Arduino Ethernet Shield page here http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoEthernetShield. Manufacturer's website says product was added to catalog on 22 Feb 2011.

My problem is that the drivers for SD card appear to not be mounted properly on on their pads (or maybe there is alternate footprints) and the SD interface is not working. Need to know what the parts are to debug the problem.

Did you expect any different?

Got just what I expected... Zilch! A good mechanic will oil a squeaky wheel though.

Still no update to Ethernet Shield docs...

Some Progress...
Down at the bottom of the Arduino Buy Page, http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Buy it says

Manufacturing
SmartProjects handles the manufacturing of all the Arduino products, with the exception of the Arduino LilyPad, Pro, and Mini Pro from SparkFun and the Arduino Nano from Gravitech.

Wandering over to SmartProjects' site http://www.smartprj.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=58 BINGO, the board which was added 20 February 2011. Lists some great New available features: Micro SD card connector with active voltage translators, Power Over Ethernet ready, On board reset controller and NOW Compatible with the Arduino MEGA board.

Unfortunately, I could not find any Contact facility or link on their website to ask about documentation. Would you do business with a company that does not list an anddress, phone or any other means of contact?

Hopefully, now that we are 60+ days out from product release Arduino will get around to updating their information... I'm still waiting.

SparkFun is simply reselling what is presumably the Arduino product. They should know, but at this point their tech support is chasing it down. You would think the webpage could be updated if a new version is shipping.
10  Using Arduino / Networking, Protocols, and Devices / Newer (than V5) Ethernet Shield? on: April 29, 2011, 09:22:05 am
Just received a new Ethernet Shield (via SparkFun), but it is neither the V1 nor V5 as shown at http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoEthernetShield. "www.Arduino.cc", "Made in Italy" and "Ethernet Shield with logo" are silkscreened so my guess is, it is "official" version.

Any suggestions on finding a schematic for this version?

Probably dumb question but...
Why is the Arduino board shaped with the "bump out" on the end opposite the power and USB connector rather than simply rectangular?
