Below is a first revision schematic of the Neato XV-11 LIDAR Piccolo board. It was created by hand and I will post a video later explaining how it was done for the curious. For the seasoned veterans just take a look at the schematic.
Some components were easy to identify and others were not so easy. The transistors are basically a best guess based off of the minimal identifying marks on the SMT package. I am not 100% sure how the laser diode control circuit works at this point so I will take some measurements of a live module to test my assumptions. Based off what I know so far the cathode of the laser module is pulsed to power the laser and it is held slightly above 0V and then lowered closer to 0V momentarily to rapidly turn the laser on and off.
Stay tuned for a video explaining the whole process along with more details. See CAD file at the bottom of page for raw schematic which was done using TinyCAD... FREEWARE!!
