Cheap DIY SD card breakout board for arduino

The schematic uses some resistors in a voltage divider to drop down the arduino 5v logic to the sd cards 3v3 logic. So all outgoing signals from the arduino are dropped to 3v3. Incoming signals to the arduino are fine because 3v3 is above logic 1 for arduino. The 3v3 voltage supply from the decimelia was used to supply power to the sd card.

The schematic (all top resistors are 1.8k, all bottom resistors are 3.3k)















/*
  SD card read/write

 This example shows how to read and write data to and from an SD card file
 The circuit:
 * SD card attached to SPI bus as follows:
 ** MOSI - pin 11
 ** MISO - pin 12
 ** CLK - pin 13
 ** CS - pin 4

#include <SD.h>


File myFile;


void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600);
  Serial.print("Initializing SD card...");
  // On the Ethernet Shield, CS is pin 4. It's set as an output by default.
  // Note that even if it's not used as the CS pin, the hardware SS pin 
  // (10 on most Arduino boards, 53 on the Mega) must be left as an output 
  // or the SD library functions will not work. 
   pinMode(10, OUTPUT);
   
  if (!SD.begin(4)) {
    Serial.println("initialization failed!");
    return;
  }
  Serial.println("initialization done.");
  
  // open the file. note that only one file can be open at a time,
  // so you have to close this one before opening another.
  myFile = SD.open("test.txt", FILE_WRITE);
  
  // if the file opened okay, write to it:
  if (myFile) {
    Serial.print("Writing to test.txt...");
    myFile.println("testing 1, 2, 3.");
// close the file:
    myFile.close();
    Serial.println("done.");
  } else {
    // if the file didn't open, print an error:
    Serial.println("error opening test.txt");
  }
  
  // re-open the file for reading:
  myFile = SD.open("test.txt");
  if (myFile) {
    Serial.println("test.txt:");
    
    // read from the file until there's nothing else in it:
    while (myFile.available()) {
    Serial.write(myFile.read());
    }
    // close the file:
    myFile.close();
  } else {
  // if the file didn't open, print an error:

void loop()
{
// nothing happens after setup
}
