Gnd

suits 1602 / 2004 LCD displays

ive been using with standard headers for flexibility
but you can use the longer through type headers to utilise all the I/O pins etc

Very nice, Steve!

Do you have a project you're going to use it in? Any chance the design files will eventually make it online?

The boards are for a product but I have a few spares.

I am not sure if this would work, I am still just learning the basics of electronics. How about using a reed relay to toggle the USB power. You could then trigger the relay with one of the digital pins. I think you would also need a 1N4001 diode or similar to protect against back EMF. This is how the time-lapse controller is wired-up in Jon's Practical Arduino book

Hi liana,

That sounds like it would work. I'm not sure what the broader question is though, does it relate to iSteve's LCD LeoStick shield project? Can you elaborate at all?

Angus
