Printshield v1.0 for Arduino printbots [Git repo]
by carlosgs, published
Circuit board that simplifies making Printbots based on Arduino UNO! :)
It is one-sided so anyone can make it easily.
-Two light sensors (LDR)
-One ultrasonic distance sensor
-Four servo-motor connectors
-Compatible with CNY70 board (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:26819)
The cap is 1000uF 6.3V (between +5V and ground), LED resistors 330ohm, LDR resistors 33kohm

the gnboard doesnt really have the stuff Im really looking for honestly. I like having the sr-04 sensor slot in front like this version, so I just modified the pcb layout very slightly and broke the line heading from vin to the servos, and put two connectors, one for the batteries for the servos, and another for power to the arduino.
I didn't burn any servo, but you are right they are not properly powered.
Please check https://github.com/carlosgs/GN... for a newer version of this same concept shield.

I have uploaded also the connection diagram so you can see the components :)
Modifications (will be added in v2.0)
- You should power the Arduino with at least 9V and place a capacitor in the 5V line when using servomotors (otherwise the board will reset due to voltage peaks).
- It is a good idea to add one diode in series with the power line for the servos, this will help minimize voltage peaks that affect the 5V line.
