I am growing fonder of my Medusa Mini boards by the day. It is really useful to have such a low cost main board. It works really well and is very reliable. I have a few general questions about it, more out curiosity than anything else.
Was there any particular reason why Medusa Mini uses a 12 MHz crystal and not a 16 Mhz one? I notice that the Arduino Uno (which also uses an ATMEGA328P) uses a 16 MHZ and was just wondering why GHI opted for a slower crystal. Does it make it more reliable? And how does the Arduino know how to calculate timings and baudrates? I can’t see that we specify the crystal frequency anywhere in the scetch.
My other question is about the Kickstarter project. When will the Kickstarter rewards be posted. Is Medusa already officially launched now, or will there still be a major official release when the Kickstarter rewards starts shipping?
