Added lines 20-21:

For more information about the pins 1-4 see AddASerialPort, for pins 1-4 and 9 see also Info.PinoutOfInternalSerialPort and for pins 7-8 see Info.PinoutOfI2CPort.

Changed line 66 from:

  • CTS2: Solder the wire from pin 9 to the left side of R142. (Later I removed R142 here, because it has only 18 ohms. If an external circuit needs to pull the trace to ground, it costs you almost 200mA!)\\

to:
  • Connector: Solder the header with its first four pins to J2, the serial port. See AddASerialPort. The four pins should give enough mechanical stability for normal use.

This is another version of a connector, not so universal like the 34-pin one (AddAThirtyFourPinUniversalConnector), but with a tap on the green led, that can be used for the transmission of infrared remote control signals (AddAnInfraredReceiverAndTransmitterWithLIRC).
It's easier to implant and less mechanical work. Note that it lacks USB and JTAG, so it's not for hardware developers.

It's easier to install and less mechanical work.

Note that it lacks USB and JTAG, so this is not for hardware developers. The 34-pin universal connector may be used to include this functionality if desired.

AddASimpleTenPinConnector

This is another version of a connector, not so universal like the 34-pin one (AddAThirtyFourPinUniversalConnector), but with a tap on the green led, that can be used for the transmission of infrared remote control signals (AddAnInfraredReceiverAndTransmitterWithLIRC).
It's easier to implant and less mechanical work. Note that it lacks USB and JTAG, so it's not for hardware developers.

The pinout:

1+3.3V
2serial 1: RXD
3serial 1: TXD
4GND
5N.C. (key for correct orientation)
6+5V
7I2C?: SCL
8I2C?: SDA
9serial 2: CTS
10GPIO[1] (green status LED)

This is how it looks: (The key at position 5 is a bit hard to see) Attach:Case-closed.jpg Δ

HOW-TO implant it:

It should look like this:
Attach:Case-Indent.jpg Δ
  • Prepare the pins of the header:
    Pins 1,2,3,4: leave alone
    Pin 5: bend it or cut it off
    Pin 6: bend to the left
    Pin 7,8: bend to the right
    Pin 9,10: bend to the left
This is how it will look like:
