F16V3 backwards compatibility
« on: November 26, 2016, 08:17:30 AM »
Dave can you make the new F16V3 backwards compatibility to all the other expansion boards. This would save us new guys that just bough all the boards for the F16V2 and if we get the new F16V3 would will not have to order new expansion boards. Just a thought is all
Going for it...

 Raspberry pi - 1 Main
 2 - Raspberry PI+PICAP
 2 x F16V2-R Pixel Controller
 5000 node  bullet PiXELS
 800 C9 PiXELS for roof out line

The expansion board currently works with both v1 and v2.  I would think it would still work with v3.  But if you want to send me your current expansion boards after this season ends I will accept them.  Also include your v2s since you must be planning to replace them.  I understand your concern, just couldn't resist.

reading up on this, This may be the way to go. I plan to add a Matrix to the base of my Mega tree next year, instead of having another E682, i could go with one of these and an Expansion board. Move the E682 to the giant matrix on the garage. I ma sure they will be available next summer, wont have the money for the GB.
