Ryde GPIO breakout

To help constructors connect easily to the Ryde RPIO, BATC has produced a small daughter board.

PCBs are available in the BATC shop - https://batc.org.uk/shop/ryde-gpio-pcb/


Construction notes

  • Note the GPIO board requires 5v NOT 12v!
  • The GPIO header is placed on the opposite side of the PCB to the rest of the components (but see below - upside down construction).
  • Pay attention to the orientation of the resistor arrays - the packages are not symmetrical.
  • Build the top side first, start with the resistors, then the resistor arrays, then the 16 way, then the headers, finally fit the 40 way on the other side of the PCB.
  • The fuse is a standard automotive mini-blade, 3A. Take care inserting it as it requires considerable force. You may need to open up the socket a little.

Schematic and bill of materials

Nothing is really critical here so don't worry about 47k vs 10k vs 22k resistor arrays.

What does matter is the IR sensor does not put more than 3.3V into the GPIO as the PI is not 5V tolerant. Therefore either use a 3.3V sensor as recommended, or if you insist on re-using that old sensor recovered from a set top box make a resistor divider using appropriate resistors. See https://wiki.batc.org.uk/Ryde_remote_controls for more details

Upside-down construction

If, for mechanical reasons, you want to put all the components on the underside of the GPIO breakout, you need to remember that the header pin connections will be reversed. The most important one to get right is the Power + and -. However, you will also need to modify the ribbon cable to the front panel as shown in this photo.

The ribbon connector was opened up, each odd/even pair reversed, and then the connector closed again.
