NVIDIA Jetson TK1, Jetduino, Connector, Electronics Interface
I received the Jetdiuno connector board yesterday from Seeed Studio Bazaar, the fabrication house that I had make the board. They did a good job on it for a great price. The only problem I have with them is how slow it is from placing the order till you get the board, but I suppose for the price I should not be complaining. Here is a picture of the bare board.
This morning I soldered on the headers and connected it up to the NVIDIA Jetson TK1 to try it out. It works great so far. It fits snuggly into the Jetson GPIO header so it takes a little work to get it out again, but I can get it in and out without too much difficulty. Here are some pics of the board with parts soldered onto it.

Finally, this is an image of it connected into the Jetson with some jumpers coming out so I can verify the voltage outputs of the connection:
I have only started testing it. I really need to get the level shifter circuit I was working on finished before I can fully test it. I accidentally ordered the wrong size capacitor for that. I am waiting for it to come in. When it does I will have a new post showing that being built, and then I can connect these two parts up and start working on the SPI communications with the Arduino Due again. Once I have done that test and made sure everything on it works as expected I will post up schematics and PCB design for the connector.
