Carrier Board

The Carrier Board connects the port headers of a JeeNode, JeeNode USB, or JeeSMD MPU board to various combinations of alternate port header positions. It fits exactly in the slots of a low-cost plastic enclosure:

The Jeenode boards can be placed in two orientations, allowing the USB or FTDI connector to either point toward the outside or the inside of the case.

If the PWR/SER/I2C and SPI/ISP connectors are also populated and connected, then all these ATmega I/O pins become available along one edge of the carrier board (for use with a “Carrier Card”, for example).

There are numerous ways to use this Carrier Board with all sorts of JeePlugs:

Configuration

There is nothing to configure.

Header Pinouts

**Note:* the port assignments depend on the orientation of the JeeNode!*

A detailed picture of the pinouts is available here.

Errata v1:

If you intend to use the optional DC power jack with version 1, make the fix described here
For version 2, the fix is not required - each of the 4 solder pads for the power jack are isolated from the ground plane to give flexibility for DC or AC power hookups.

The Carrier Card is a companion board which adds two larger prototype boards to fill the remaining area of the plastic enclosure.
