Prototype Board layout

For the prototype board layout we used Arduino as basis. To make the board more “wearable” (especially smaller and lighter) instead of using one board we divided the hardware into 3 components. The main board that is also required on the actual textile and hosts the microcontroller:

The programmer board that is only used while uploading programs from the computer:

And finally the power supply board that is necessary to use different kinds of power supply (e.g.) batteries. You can use 6 to 12 V:

The parts of the 3 components (ordered at Reichelts in Germany) cost around 10 Euro alltogether.
