Hey @everyone ,
I just want to announce that we're shipping a fixed revision of the PXFmini. There's no major changes from components side. We have fixed the JST connector pinout. Prior to this revision, the conectors where following DF13 exact pinout.
Notice that the pin "1" at JST is just at the opposite side:
Now, they're mirrored in order to comply with DroneCode's standard:
The major improvement comes when using GPS: the connector integrates serial and I2C bus, so you only need 1 connector to plug your GPS+compass device. This image shows a GPS that integrates GPS + compass in the same connector:
So you have avaliable
I2C connectors to plug more sensors!
All this pinout changes affects to the wires you're using in components such as Power Module, GPS, ...
In order to identify the new revision, the silkscreen of the PCB includes now connectors pin name, so you must be able to know which revision you have:
Unfortunately, the PCB manufacturer has decided to erase the revision silkscreen in order to place their part number Hope we'll be able to solve this soon.
- Which cable I must use for the Power Module with the new revision?
This is a question that you might have. We'll ship, for now on, Power Modules that meets with this new pinout. In case you have doubts, check this images:
For now on, you need to use "new" version of cable.
Hope is clear,
