Have a look at Terry King's site

http://yourduino.com/

Or get in touch with him. Last I heard he was trying to document all the bricks.

I think Terry is in the process of moving at the moment so he might not be responsive at first. I haven't seen him post for a while now.

Hi Everyone,

I Am Moved.. to Vermont USA for the Summer, but the Yourduino.com site is always up.  (My usual UserID is blocked somehow; this is temporary...)

I DO have a plan for documenting all the "Electronic Bricks". I have a relationship now with Xiao, the guy who originated the Electronic Brick idea and whose hardware designs are the best and whose build quality is excellent. I have translated some of his Chinese blog entries where he discusses various bricks, and I am working on more. 

Take a look here for the most common bricks. Just click on a photo for how-to and documentation:
http://arduino-info.wikispaces.com/BrickStarterSet

Several other bricks are documented on the arduino-info Wiki, and more to come.

A section on relays and power handling is here:
http://arduino-info.wikispaces.com/ArduinoPower

I will also continue to document and provide test sketches for subassemblies and sensors that are not strictly "Electronic Bricks" because many provide excellent function and value.  I am constantly testing new devices and subassemblies we find in the great electronics arena at Shenzhen, China.  Soon I will publish a page showing simple connections and cabling options for Arduino to a variety of devices.

I hope to be able to the bring the Electronic Brick designs into an open-source agreement.  Some new designs are in the works and should be interesting, I believe.  More specific support for Home Automation and Robotics is (I hope) coming...

Arduino, especially the 2560 variants, are very capable microcomputers for many, many applications.  I hope for some meaningful collaborations to come together soon.

Please email me with any suggestions for products or capabilities, questions on "Bricks" etc....

terryking228, these pages are really helpful and quite detailed. However the brick I've been having troubles with is the Sensor brick shown at the bottom of page http://arduino-info.wikispaces.com/Brick-Temperature-DS18B20. Some work, some don't and i don't know why. I bought a batch of 5, and only three 3 work.

Dear Jim,

Really sorry, I just saw this.. i got somehow banned for bad passwords and no one has ever been able to resurrect me..

The bottom of the referenced page shows some "waterproof DS18b20 sensors" connected to a terminal "brick" connected by a 3-pin cable (to Arduino).

Do you have 5 of those stainless steel probes with the cable with 3 wires on the end?  Where did you get them and approximately when??

Let's try to figure this out...
