 +===== ultracore =====
 +1 core module, 4 IIC modules, and 8 banksticks on a single pcb designed for midibox seq, router, or any other application you can think of.\\
 +===== features =====
 +core module with two lcd headers and pinout that matches most standard displays.\\
 +4 iic modules.\\
 +8 banksticks.\\
 +all headers (except midi i/o and power) match smashtv'​s boards and work directly with his modules.\\
 +compact 160 x 80 mm pcb.
 +===== pcb information =====
 +the pcb headers are the same as what is documented at http://​ except for the following:
 +J15A/J15B (no image yet)
 +very important!!! i have included headers for two lcds, and they are rewired to match standard lcd pinouts. ​ please check your lcd datasheet to see if it matches for a 1:1 connection.  ​
 +J1A is a connection to your power supply, and J1B breaks the connection to the core to allow for a switch. ​ to bypass the switch, simply insert a jumper into J1B or connect the top pins of J1A and J1B to the power supply.
 +this is the midi i/o header for the core.  it uses a 6 or 10 pin dil header. ​ this configuration was requested on the forum. ​ i am using this with a pair of 3-pin sil connectors from futurlec and they sit very snug on the header. J13 is midi input and J12 is midi output.
 +this is the midi i/o header for the iic modules. ​ J5 is midi input and J6 is midi output.
 +JP1 configures the pcb to be used as a seq or a router. ​ for seq, connect the left and center pins.  for a router, connect the right and center pins.
 +JP2, JP3, and JP4 configures the pcb to be used as a router. ​ connect each set of pins together if you're using a router. ​ leave them disconnected for a seq.
 +===== parts =====
 +i was originally going to make a parts list, but the information is already available at http://​\\
 +the only difference is i left off the 10uF capacitors on the IIC modules.
 +===== group buy =====
 +[[ucoregb|ultracore group buy]]
 +===== thanks =====
 +this is the first pcb i've made and i would have been lost without the help from people like smashtv, nils, bugfight, and many others. ​ so thanks for all the help!  especially bugfight, who took the time to go over the ultracore schematic and make sure everything was correct (it wasn'​t). ​ many others from the chat and forum helped me in making the pcb, whether it be ideas, error spotting, or general criticism. ​ the midibox community is truly a really cool place.
