hey guys... here is Sascha.
I designed the V1 and V2 Shields for the Pin2DMD Setup.
PinballSP just covered everything (but he makes a real good job and made it on one pcb with smd comp.).
There is a new V3 Shield on the market right now.
With WiFi functions, Seriell OUT (to trigger events over smart DMD function), REAL Pinball DMD Input Signal enhancer, GO-DMD function (check www.go.dmd.de ), flat design to hook directly to a P2.5 DMD 128x32 pixel (allmost the same size like an original DMD).
and a nice discount for the next 7 Orders (and anyways cheaper as the german V3 Shield).
The most parts on the Shield are bougth in the USA (everything except the PinHeaders, and GO-DMD Sensors).
PCB is made in China, with a great Quality (sorry, but prototyping in the US is to expensive, I wish that the boards would be made here).
