LCDuino-1: our new integrated LCD/Arduino board goes to manufacturing!

    the LCDuino is born!

    first batch of beta-test boards for LCDuino-1 just went out (to get made) today!

    above, is the 3d model of what an assembled unit should look like.

    this is the flip-side of the board:

    and here is a real prototype, connected up to the lcd panel:

    parts list (visual):

    I worked with Ti (AMB Labs) on this project. this is a joint LinuxWorks/AMB design. the beautiful pc board routing is due to AMB's expertise in this area.

    functional design items of interest: i2c driver for LCD display; realtime clock chip (with supercap backup); spacious proto-hole area for custom app-specific circuits; onboard reset switch; onboard power LED and pin13 LED; standard FTDI download usb cable support; 2 layer ground-plane pc board.

    form factor is exactly the same as the 16x2 hitachi standard LCD displays.

    more details to come, including beta-test program and boards (and full kits) that you can buy and build.

    watch the related websites for more info:

    (AMB will be selling these in his e-store once they're in production).

      this project is a continuation of one that was seen on both Make magazine and hack-a-day:

      in both cases, the LCD backpack was hand made with proto-board. now, finally, we can update this with a real professionally etched, drilled and labeled double sided board!

      we have many other projects planned that will use the LCDuino as the controller.
