i have been playing for a while now with the Arduino, and i was to the point of building a PCB for DMX lighting control.
-DIN 3 pin Male (PCB solder)
-DIN 3 pin Female (PCB solder)
-Dip switch (x9) for DMX address (on a Parallel to Serial Chip to save Arduino Pins)
-Space for proto.
Here is the question:
Would it be better to build it on a Shield or a Stand alone board?
The Stand alone Board, would have a little more part:
AtMega 328, 16MHz Resonator, and 6 pin header for update but in the gain of freeing your Arduino board ($30) for something else.
And also how many of you would be interessed in such a board?
Thanks all for all the support that you already gave me
