I got a chance to start working on the Arduino (ninja) badge prototype. This first prototype is inspired but the hackduino project. I wanted to make something functional but didn’t want to mess with etching a board on the first attempt. Since I wasn’t paying attention when I ordered the parts, I accidentally ordered a 5v voltage regulator vs a 3.3v one (LM1117). That should come in tomorrow. All that is currently working is the bare-bones ardunio circuit with a LED flashing. I started to wire in the LCD but stopped when I realized what voltage I had and didn’t want to use a level shifter on this board. After I get the new voltage regulator put in I’ll wire up the LCD and the buttons and write up a test sketch. Here is a picture of the progress.
