I mistakenly removed resistor R1 from the Dual Motor TinyShield  ASD2302-R-C - thinking that it may interfere with the Wireling Adapter (I2C wise).

Question...is it possible to replace R1 (which is shown as 1k on the schematic) with 0 ohms (a dead short jumper)...as a temporary repair for now?

Thanks,
John

John,

That is possible and you could replace it with a jumper cable, but I would recommend just changing your program to accept the changed address of the motor board.

Changing: MotorDriver motor(NO_R_REMOVED);

To: MotorDriver motor2(R1_REMOVED);

I believe that should do the trick.

Best,
Réna

Réna,

I've already (mistakenly) removed R1 on the Motor Controller board and changed the code to match...thinking that it interfered with the Wireling board. 

I want to go the other way, now, so that the product I'm developing is compatible with your "off the shelf" boards with nothing removed.

Thanks for the tip...I try it and let you know.

John
