$40 as a you solder kit and $50 as a all assembled board? It's a little more than an Arduino, but I guess it's worth it.

Thanks for adding I2C pull-ups! :)

I was thinking final product to be between 40 and 50 dollars . Solder kit would be less ( not sure by how much)

I'll post up an Eagle3D rendering of it later this week. I'm off to bed , gonna try to sleep a normal amount

Looks great! Well done! So, when is going to  be available  just the board?

O.T. Didn't know you are hungarian... Forkos means Wolf, right?

Not exactly sure , when the board will be available - probably in a month or two

Yep I have hungarian ancestry

The first Roboduino has been assembled!!!

Waiting on a voltage regulator and then the Roboduino will be ready for testing.

Nice!!!

Make sure you burn the Adaboot bootloader!

Did you put the cap from the CTS line to the RESET pin? This ensures the autoreset to enter bootloader code when you send the sketch to the ATmega...

It looks great!

Do you think it will still be available in a month or two...January maybe?

Should be available a few days before the holidays

yep I did.   
.1uF if I recall correctly......

As for the bootloader I guess there would be an option for that- with bootloader or without. I personally plan to use ISP only but I get it differs from person to person.

So, did you manage to add power selection jumpers for the servo pins? If so, where they are placed on the PCB?

no power selection jumpers

All pins marked PWM have unregulated power while all the others are regulated. Shouldn't be a problem if you want regulated power since at the bottom left there are columns of pins dedicated for unregulated, regulated, and GND

Well done on developing the Roboduino,

Just reading through this thread. Did you throw away the idea of a robot arduino shield? That I would buy. 50 dollars extra (when I already have an arduino) for convenient headers isn't worth it for me (while I'm sure it would be for others).

With the amount of Arduinos sold already (approx 20,000), I think you would have a nice market for selling shields. I think people would be much more inclined to pay 10 dollars for a robot protoshied, which is only a pcb with some headers. Sell it as a kit and it should be very cheap to make.

Anyway it just a suggestion,

Well done again

I'll think about the shield.
Its definitely a possibility.
