Master Control Project » 1/2-Size Perma Proto

This little board is used via the Patch shield to move some I/O pins off the Arduino and shields, and out to where they are needed. The black connector and green board are a ‘Satellite board’ from the Patch shield, where the Cat-5 cable plugs in. After Ground and Vcc, that leaves 6 more I/O lines. Four are currently in use – a control line to toggle the Aquarium lights on and off, a control line to toggle the Game of Life on and off, and two Dallas OneWire lines, one for each aquarium, currently just sensing temperature. One unused line is set up for controlling a PowerSwitch Tail, and the other unused line is set up as an input on the Arduino’s Interupt 1.
