KraftModul

The KraftModul provides a stabilized voltage of 5V and 3.3V when applying a supply voltage between 6V and 20V. The idea is to have only one voltage control unit in the robot for all other modules instead of integrating it in each board. I'm not sure if this design really saves space and weight but anyway it simplifies design.

Schematic Diagram

Like all my circuits I've planed the schematic diagram and board layout with Eagle.

Finished Board

As always I've ordered the boards at Olimex. Soldering the parts is nothing special. The only thing you should keep in mind is when you solder a bigger part then check if you first have to solder a small part around which you can't reach later.
