I knew that there were discrepancies between The Arduino schematic and the R3 product as shipped (just got mine). At least I work on the hard copy to make the corrections in a m ore or less permanent manner.
I totally agree that Arduino (or someone) should release a schematic that is consistent with the R3 product Indeed the schematic on the Spatkfun site that available on the Arduino site where they refer to it as a reference design. Arduino is so busy releasing new different products and revisions that they seem to have forgotten who their customer base is and their needs
Thanks labreuer. Fedex doesn’t have any Kinkos in Quebec but Staples has numerous Copy Centers. They printed the schematic on 11"x17" which is quite readable and much less expensive (although smaller) than a banner at ~$1.50 a copy. I may still get a banner printed to put up on the wall for class purposes.
The Mega 2560 R3 seems an awesome Arduino - I have one on backorder. I know that the schematic is available as a .pdf: a consequence of using Eagle it would appear. My problem is that I can read the schematic by using the appropriate Adobe reader size factor, say, 300%. But then printing with reader’s current view gets scaled according to the “paper size” as shown in the lower left corner when printing to 8 ½ x 11 paper.
I intend using the Mega 2560 in a course and would like, ideally, to have the complete schematic in both readable AND printable form. This would necessitate splitting it on to ¾ 8 ½ x 11 sheets but this is not a problem. In the current .pdf form this is difficult.
I have experimented 200 - 300% blowups and taking screen shots using MWSnap 3 (free) and printing the different shots. The use of scissors and sticky tape (tedious!) yields a complete readable hardcopy of the schematic that is not user-friendly.
Does anyone have a better idea? Or even undertake to produce the schematic on several 8 ½ x 11 paper - the individual sheets do not have to “line-up” for my needs.
No public wish lists :(
