32 x IO/Servo Hat – rev 1.5

This is a new version of my 32 x IO/Servo Hat. I have always been a bit unhappy with pin-header connectors since they can be disconnected easily, so I decided to try how a surface mounted 2-pin JST worked out and voila – 32 2 pin connectors with signal and ground. This means I drop the +Voltage signal and expect that to be fed from somwhere else – this is actually good as it makes it easy to mix 5V, 12V and 24V servo solutions + these connectors are good as they will not drop out due to vibration.

This is one of my simplest, but yet most usable Hat’s and this connector solution makes a great addition and enable it to be used as part of an automobile stack without being worried about connectors falling off.
