This PcB features SMD components on both sides. They won't be able to solder it using an oven, for fear of components falling off. It has to be soldered by hand using hot air.:hihi:

The Atmega328 is the chip found on the Arduino UNO. My thinking was, if the Mega were to run short on memory, maybe some of the more generic led control coding could be moved to Atmega328. The 328...

Nice! I've been busy redesigning the next iteration of the iAqua shield to include the PCA9685 chip. How many of the 16 PWM outputs are you planning to control with the new software? I've managed to...

LOL- That's a good idea.

I use silver as an antimicrobial in mine. I simply place any US coin that predates 1965 (pure silver prior to 65') into the container. The coin leaches just enough silver...
