Incorrect schematic for RS232/GPIO Shield for Raspberry Pi

Recommended Posts

I bought this shield a few weeks ago, but it seems the schematic linked to
from the wiki is incorrect.

Wiki page
http://linksprite.com/wiki/index.php5?title=RS232/GPIO_Shield_for_Raspberry_Pilinks
to
https://s3.amazonaws.com/linksprite/Shields/RS232_RPI/RS232_GPIO_shield.pdf,
which does not match the shield I got.

For example, there is no LED on my shield, and the various connectors are
not the same.

It is of course possible to track all the PCB traces to get the pinout of
the connectors, but it would be nice to have a correct pinout of the 3x8
headers to the right of the PCB..

I believe you got the RS232 shield not the "Base shield" Why they call the ADC shield a "base shield" is anyone's guess?!?

 

Is this what you got?

The ADC base shield has the LED.
