Although we have just now started this project page, we have been working on this project for close to 6 months now. The panelized design took a long time to figure out (even the requirements for what we wanted to include and how the frame was to go together was quite difficult). We went through a number of iterations before settling on this one.
Now that the boards are here, and basic operation is confirmed, the next step is to start writing software. It may take a few months to get things going, though, so don't hold your breath. ;-)
So far, I have tested the following aspects of the design:
- ATMega32u4 programming via external USB dongle, and setting clock speed in software (no ISP / setting fuses required)
- 5v Boost converter (for AVR) and 3.3v LDO (for radios)
- Status LED
Things I have not yet tested:
- I2C communication with IMU
- Serial communication with radio
- Motors 2, 3, and 4
I think that covers just about everything in the hardware...
