Britton, this is Way Cool!How did you do this? I'd love to use this approach to explain some other stuff I am working on, such as this: http://yourduino.com/ElectronicBricks1.htmAnd this: http://yourduino.com/pins-bits-1-0-.htmWhatIf there was a similar thing with a image of the physical Arduino, with "normal" voltage readings at different points, for those of us trying to fix an abused or unlucky Arduino?? Wow. So much stuff to learn about...
...Most important reason is none of the sellers publishes schematic drawings of the modules, documentation on a whole really sucks on this product line. That's not a big deal for a button brick or a pot brick, but when you get to a mic/audio brick it's impossible to actually tell what kind of signal output to expect or how much amplification range one has, etc. Second problem is that some of their example sketches for some of the bricks are downright dishonest in that they are not actually testing the module for it's primary purpose, but rather just say lighting a led to say it probably is functioning somewhat. That added to the zero documentation can make it very difficult to actually utilize some of their brick products....
Hi Lefty, Absolutely right and I am working on this now. My friend in Shenzhen, China (I lived there for 2 years) found the guy who designed the original Electronic bricks (As compared to other follow-ons from DFRobot etc). His name is Xiao and he is from Beijing. He is a very technically sharp guy who has designed stuff like a W5100 Ethernet Brick, but does not have a lot of English.
Maybe we need an effort like Jon Oxer has done for Shields: http://shieldlist.org/ ?? What is your opinion??
I like the idea of "built-in GVS sensor-shield-like" connectors on an "Arduino" compatible.
Anyway, WhatIf we start a thread on this subject???
The "Romeo" etc.
The "Romeo" is here:
LIKE the idea of a highly-capable 1280/2560 based board.
