Suggestion for DuinoProto


#1

While working on DaisyLink I really would like to have on of the connectors to be rotated 180 degrees for the “*”. May be for a v 2.0?


#2

Couldn’t you solder the connector that way?


#3

I can, but then I will have the same issue on the next module in the chain. I’ll have to plug the cable facing inside the module.


#4

If you solder the connector rotated, the IDC pinout will not match the silk screen and may be confusing to the builder.


#5

Also, rotating the connector on the DuinoProto is a NO-NO. As the power connections are already made. If you rotate the connector then you feed power to non-power pins…


#6

Exactly, It does require some rerouting. I am thinking about modifying the current DuinoProto for that purpose and may be getting a few made by DorkbotPDX. But I’d rather wait if GHI is going to offer that and order from GHI.


#7

How about connectors on both top sides of the board?


#8

We can upgrade duinoproto in next run.
