Welcome to the WEEGEE Board!

What is it?

The WeeGee board is a joint project from Spymongoose and Shadowmite of shadowmite.com.

8-Bit Atmel microcontroller with ISP port (running at 7.3728MHz)
16 easy access digital IO with Handyboard style connectors
8 of those can additionally be used as analog
1 Extra open serial port (4 pin header) (first is used for XBEE Wireless)
2 Built in H-Bridges capable of motors with up to ~3A draw (depending on heat sink used up to 8A)
X-Bee 2.4gHz Wireless Link on board complete with reset and sleep control from the AVR
3 Additional IO lines can be used from the ISP port if needed
Additional 2 IO lines from AVR + 8 from X-Bee available in non wired port under X-Bee
Those are shared with the LED and Piezo buzzer.
On/Off physical switch on main
Minimal power usage when X-Bee and AVR are in sleep mode
3.3V Logic used throughout

I will try to keep this post updated with the proper specs of the device for the current release. We are making a few tweaks to release the WEEGEE 1.2 Gerbers for manufacturing.
