MiniPiio DIO16 v0.10

July 24th, 2012

The third and final board we built from the batch of PCB’s we received on Friday was the MiniPiio_DIO16.

The MiniPiio_DIO16 is a 16-channel digital input/output add-on card for the Raspberry Pi. The board can use either a Microchip MCP23s17 (SPI) or a MCp23017 (I2C) Port Expander IC.

The choice of chip is done by jumper headers on the PCB. In addition the I2C and SPI address is also selectable by jumper headers. Finally, the choice of SPI Chip Select (SPI_CE0 or SPI_CE1) can ne made via a jumper header. By my reckoning thats 7 jumper headers.

The I/O ports from the chis are brought out to two pin strips. As well as I/O each pin strip has a ground, while one has a fused 5V supply and the other a non-fused 3.3V supply.

The schematics are here
