BMD-S Prototyping Shield V1.1

Our new, improved (or should that be corrected) HUB-ee wheel prototyping shield for Arduino™.

Key Features:

  • Designed to drive two HUB-ee BMD-S wheels with optional quadrature encoder feedback. (enabled via jumpers)
  • On board open collector drivers with noise filters for both pairs of sensors.
  • Large prototyping area.

We made a few big changes when we updated our first shield design, the main thing we did was to get rid of the Micro-MaTch connectors and replace them with straight 0.1 inch headers - these headers match the headers on our connector breakout board and mini-cable splitter so you now have a choice:

You can solder a cable directly to the board, solder on a breakout board, or solder on a splitter for dual sync drive.

Because of this change the new board comes in three bundled options:

  1. Plain Board.
  2. Board + Two HUB-ee cable Breakout boards.
  3. Board + Two HUB-ee cable splitter boards.

We have also increased the prototyping area and improved the way power is distributed:

  • The Arduino™ VIn pin is now protected with a diode - this prevents any motors receiving power when the USB programming cable is plugged in.
  • The power in headers are isolated with a jumper, allowing you to attach a switch if required (or just solder a link in place)
  • There is now a power bus on the board called VIO that connects to a jumper allowing you to select an appropriate power source for other peripherals (3.3V or 5V) depending on the Arduino voltage.
  • Encoder inputs from the wheels have filter capacitors and open collector drivers so the 3.3V sensor signals will correctly drive the Arduino external interrupts pins without any glitches - you need to enable pull up resistors on these Arduino pins for the sensors to work properly.
