Thanks for the reply. Firstly, and most importantly, before answering your questions, our most basic question for the SCAXb KoRe is:
It makes sense to us to provide a very affordable ATmega Xbee solution. Would you as an end user like to have the SCAXb KoRe that would retail at a price of $45 as compared to existing ATmega Xbee solutions that end up in the $65-$75 price range?
Now, here are answers and questions to your suggestions:
1] I cannot see the resonator on the board. Where is it?
The resonator is between the reset switch and the bottom 2 20pf capacitors
2] It is not clear from the 3D image, but is the USB connector going to be type miniB?
We did not think about the miniB but does a miniB connector make the board more appealing to existing Arduino users?
3] If yes, since you take "quotes for procuring", would you also sell some of these?
You mean sell stackable female headers right?
4] Few more suggestions:
1. An on/off switch would be useful - Agree
2. The LEDs should be connectible through jumpers, if you want the board to be useful in slee mode as well
Could you please elaborate on this?
3. You can save some space by mounting the resistors vertically; or use SMD, or even 1/8 watts - Agree 1/8watts preferred solution
