Meet the JeeNode v6

In Hardware on May 1, 2011 at 00:01

The JeeNode v5 addeth a diode, and the JeeNode v6 taketh it away again:

Dsc 2490

Here is the new board, which I’ve started including in the latest packages:

Dsc 2492

The differences with v5 are:

  • The diode jumper is now shorted out by default (cut a trace on bottom side to use a diode).
  • There is a new ground connection near the antenna connection.
  • The PD2 (INT0) and PB2 (SS) pins are now connected to pads (same layout as on JS2).
  • Minor tweaks, such as labeling fixes.

Nothing big or serious, as you can see – I’ll gradually update various bits and pieces on the web to match this revision. For now, please just continue using the links and build instructions of the v5.

(Apologies for the long hiatus, but I needed the break!)
