Update #6

New shield kit: Breakout headers!

8 comments

By request: We've added another shield kit!

Breakout Header Kits
This board has 6 additional headers each with one i/o pin, ground, and 5v brought out to it. It is perfboard compatible or you can use female 3-pin header jumpers to plug things into it. This board is about twice the size of the Digispark, but will not block the USB side of it.
Price: $2.50 (includes all headers needed)

All shields can be seen on the following update or from your personal backer page: 
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/digistump/digispark-the-tiny-arduino-enabled-usb-dev-board/posts/289122

We're going to take a break from new shields for a few days, but keep sending your ideas (we're still working on the SD card shield), we'll keep adding them to our list - but if you want more shields help us spread the word so we can afford to make them!

      @Dennis - I know which I want/need, I was just trying to avoid too many people casually choosing the wrong one without checking their own needs carefully.

      I think it's pretty hard to say "GND/5V/Pin works with many sensors" or "GND/Pin/5V works with most servos".
      For example I'm using GND/Pin/5V servos and GND/Pin/5V sensors. But I know there are still a lot of GND/5V/Pin servos and sensors. There is no easy decision "take A for sensors" or "take B for servos".

      The DigiStump backer page (your personal digistump.com/backer.php one) suggests "Breakout A" (Gnd/Power/Signal) is for sensors and "Breakout B" (Gnd/Signal/Power) is for "most servos". Is there a chance that it's listed the wrong way around?
      The servos I have here (Futabas, so pretty common and wired black/red/white) and every reference I've found on the web all suggest Gnd/Power/Signal is the most common ordering for servo signals.
      (I'm in the UK, but I thought the standard was global)

      @Dennis, you could get both and stack them! - I'm not seeing the numbers we need to justify another variation, right now it is the second least popular.

      I like the idea of a 4 x GND/5V/Pin and 2 x GND/Pin/5V split board very much.

      Both are now available!

      Unfortunately I think no configuration would make everyone happy. The current layout is good for a lot of 3-pin sensors. The servo layout is good for some other 3-pin sensors, and servos.

      I think a version of this board with each of the potential layouts might be in order? Or possibly even a 4/2 split between different layouts.

      Is it possible to change the layout to Ground/Pin/5V instead of Ground/5V/Pin?? I'd like to use the Breakout board with some servos.
