The design objectives for this baseboard were to create a general purpose baseboard that can be used for educational use, or just as effectively designed into an embedded solution and forgotten. Whether for education, hobby, or commercial usage, a reliable design reduces doubt, development and rework.
While experimenting, headers and shorting blocks permit easy alteration for flexible access to various IO configurations. For permanent installations, soldered-in jumpers could be used instead.
Where to from here? I'm assessing a number of possible directions:
+ Add a POE module as an alternate power source.
+ Add a display module, because a user interface is often desired.
+ Mature the WiFly bridge.
+ Mature the HDMI-CEC Bus interface.
+ Consider Packaging options.
+ Consider some additional flexibility in the analog/digital input circuitry.
