Final version of the Valdez Mutant Prototype.
I added voltage-shifting on the TX/RX line between the LPC1114 and the external programmer. Also, I added protection resistors on the lines between the LPC1114 and the HM-11's CC245x.
All components are mounted on the top surface, except two 0402 resistors for the SDA and SCL pullup. And, the HM-11 is mounted on the bottom.
I got the HM-11's in today. Damn itty-bitty boards. Pretty stoked about them.
I left the linear regulator on the board for the prototype. But if all goes as expected, I'd really like to add the Murata single package, SMD DC-DC.http://www.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Detail&itemSeq=154670511&uq=635428437031557794
They aren't much bigger than a linear regulator. So, why the hell not, right? Sadly, they cost about 4 times that of a linear. Therefore, I'll merely leave it as an option.
I put two 3mm mounting holes. I should have put them adjacent each other, but traces didn't work. Still, I got mounting holes on there!
The switch engages/disengages the HM-11 RX/TX lines.
Lastly, the RGB LED displays the RX/TX traffic and BLE connection status.
Well, that's it. Boards are on their way, so keep your fingers crossed.
