Free PCBs looking for a good home

I accidently sent the wrong Gerber files when I ordered some PCBs from http://iteadstudio.com/ so now I’m stuck with 14 boards that I don’t need.
Lesson to be learned : Don’t order PCBs late at night after a 6-pack of beer…

This was my first DipTrace project and I do believe they work. I have not tested the board in detail as I had started another project when they arrived. These are the same boards that I mentioned here

A brief description of the board:

  • Uses a PICAXE 18M2
  • An SN75441ONE (or an L293D) H-bridge
  • Programming interface broken out to 3 pins
  • Most of the pins broken out to a header
  • Headers for 5 servos
  • Power regulator for the servo power (no cap’s so I don’t know if it works)

I have attached the schematic

So I’m giving away 14 boards for FREE. Just send me you shipping address via the contact form http://letsmakerobots.com/user/10562/contact and I’ll send you one. If more than 14 people shows interest I’ll probably make a draw or something.

PS. This is just the blank board and nothing else, with no guarantee whatsoever.

So cool that you're doing this.

I send my adres to you, and will look to the time that there is mail for me.


Well, I just with you'd have drunk a 6 pack beer before making the design in DipTrace and made the mistake of choosing Arduino 328PU instead of Picaxe 18M2....

May I request one?

Just send me an email via the contact form and I will send you one.

Just got it in the mail,

Its a very good looking board. 

Thank you very very much.

I hope it works :-)

I only need to get the Picaxe and the H-bridge,

But i can't get the picaxe chip in the netherlands so i need to find a good store for it.

And again its a realy good nice awesome looking board.

Good job

The only problem i encountered is that the hole's for the resistors are to small, only one of the three resistors fits.

Do you know how i can put the other two in??

I had no problems with regular 1/4W resistors.
How can one fit and not the other two?

I don't know the first one i had to pull a little bit with a needlenose plier but the other two just wouldn't fit.
