The early stages of development

Connections to the ribbon cable at Arduino - simples!

The connections to the Fatman. The Arduino just emulates the function of the original 8031 - there are no other connections between Arduino and Fatman required (yet....) and no other electronics components. This makes the upgrade really easy - just connect the correct pins of the Arduino to the correct pins of the 8031 socket, download the code to the Arduino, and you now have a FatDuino!!! Please be kind to the environment and sell your 8031 on ebay rather than binning it - they're a little scarce no.

Please note, knobs and buttons are still cryptic. Soon, labels will be added so that mere mortals know what they do.
