Topic: Can someone identify this symbol in the Arduino schematic? (Read 910 times) previous topic - next topic



It is a printed circuit pad that is normally shorted out. You can cut the short and then connect it up again with a blob of solder.


Although in this particular case I believe it is used more as a multiple-ground separation technique than a "configurable connection". The designers most likely wanted to keep the USB cable ground somewhat separate from the remaining microcontroller ground (note the ATmega8U2 has separate grounds for this purpose).
