  • Page 2 is missing in the pdf-version of the Schematic.

  • Whether 3.3V or 5V, I’d love to see an Arduino Mega Pro. That board would definitely find its way into my shopping cart.
    (a mini version would properly be to big for a breadboard)

  • As a workaround you might use the ATTINY13 (seems to have the same pinout as the ATTINY25/45/85 and the DIP package is available).

  • @Sparkfun:
    Nice adapter, but may I suggest an improvement concerning the inline connector?
    Every AVR I have seen so far (at least the ones in DIP packages) have the MOSI signal at pin x, MISO at pin x+1 and SCK at pin x+2. If the adapter would have these signal in the same order, wiring the prototype on the breadboard would be easier.
    And if you put VCC at pin x+3 you could connect most of the 8-pin ATTINYs with just 2 wires.

  • Wouldn’t it also be possible to use black & white film to produce the bakode pattern? As I see it, you would just have to print (a negative version of) the pattern on a regular printer and then take a picture of it with a good old film based camera to shrink it down to the cameras 24x35mm frame.
    Rollei’s Ortho 25 film has a resolution of up to 330 lines per mm (= 8382 lines per inch = 16764 dpi) that should suffice (if Andrews calculation is correct).

  • Hey Nate, if you are hiring in Austria give me a call!

  • If you look close enough there is a trace between the pad on top and the pad in the middle (http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/images/products/09115-02-L.jpg). Cut this trace, solder the remaining (bootom) pad to the pad in the middle and you are done.

  • @hagna:
    I think Jim was talking about the pre-loaded boot loader that comes with the kit, whereas Ryan’s article is referring to his own PIC Code (that definitely has a splash screen).

No public wish lists :(
