StripDuino Shield Mk1

StripDuino Shield

This post details the design for the shield for use with the StripDuino Mk.2 Arduino clone.

This shield could be used for many things.  My first shield will incorporate a L293D for driving some motors for our first robot project.

Hopefully there will be plenty more uses in the future.

The design brings out all of the ATMega328′s pins except the Analogue Reference (AREF).  It provides regulated +3.3V & +5V supplies.

WARNING.  The tracks on the veroboard must be cut to prevent the pins on the left & right headers shouting out & damaging the StripDuino!

The pinout for the shield can be seen in Figure 1:
