    I am surprised it only take 20mA. Seems low to me, I thought it was more like an Amp. When I as younger I used to work at a Vacuum shop doing repairs. One evening I grabbed two test leads at the same time while they were powered. (The other guy didn’t like the rubber boots). I ended up in the hospital. But no damage. It sure felt like a lot more than 20mA. It was 110V from one hand to the other. I couldn’t let go till I was unpluged. I felt really good after until I almost passed out. The paramedic said she was surprised I didn’t have burns and that the grease on my hands helped.

    I tell you hearing the sirens coming for you really makes you think. Be careful with power!

    Or if you want just username put friedcircuits which is my Github username.

    Sounds good! You can just put William from I am interested to how it improves ;). I am just getting back into the Rover5 and working on getting the BeagleBone with Arduino for the low level stuff working. I think I will be going the ROS route. Should be posting soon on

    Thanks Toni!

    Early Last year I made a library for this controller. I just saw that SFE has it now and decided to post it. I posted it on Github so at least its a starting point. I am sure it can be improved but all the basic functions are there including encoders.

    For info on the encoders it uses the teensy library inside of this library.

    Check out and let me know what you think.

    ;) Love Halo. I am glad I never ended up with one of the old controllers, terrible.

    Would affect the return path not being the most direct? What would be the side affects?

    I try really hard to stick with 2 layers PCBs and sometimes you have to get creative to have routing room. At least OSHPark allows for pretty small tolerances.

    Thanks for the info on VCC routing. I do a mix of hand routing and auto routing. Then if needed if redo some of the auto routed traces.

    @Pete, Thanks for the great video. I have been learning PCB layout over the last few years. You can see my work at I had a quick question. When I do final routing it tends to break up the ground plane. It is okay or good practice to use vias to connect broken areas to the lower ground plane so that all the ground “sections” are connected somewhere?

    The Atmega328p is 28pin. But this will work with the ATTiny2313\4313.

    I got my ISP pogo adapter in and soldered. Loving it.

No public wish lists :(
