HDMI Breakout Part 2
I see the PCB in my Nov 6,
2013 post is getting some interest, so here's more info about it.
The image to the left is a Kicad screenshot. The breakout connector
(P1, CONN_5X2) is at the top, and pin 1 is the top right pad.
Odd-numbered pins on top, and even-numbered on the bottom.
Top connections are:
and the bottom connections are:
(J1 and J2 both)
use the board as a passthrough connection, add jumpers connecting
3-4, 5-6, 7-8, and 9-10. Obviously, it's NOT a good idea to have a
jumper connecting 1 and 2 (ground and +5V).
Here's the schematic. Pin 20 is the metal shell of the
connector, not a real pin.
