Droidalyzer/ IOIOMint Technical Detail
IOIO (pronounced “yo-yo”) is a bridge between Android devices and external hardware such as sensors and servos. IOIO enables you to add the computational power, touch display, connectivity, and built-in sensors (camera, GPS, accelerometer) of Android to your projects. IOIO can connect to any standard Android device (as early as Android 1.5) over both USB and Bluetooth. Here’s a few IOIO projects which will give you an idea of what you can do with IOIO. These two projects have full tutorials: Magic Mirror Mini and the Android Controlled RGB LED Matrix.
IOIOMint is a special edition version of the IOIO board with the added features of an on-board LiPO charger, LiPO battery, header pins, included Bluetooth dongle, and mini USB board power/charging port, all mounted in a laser cut, mint tin package. IOIOMint is identical to the Droidalyzer hardware with the exception that IOIOMint does not include the alcohol sensor.
Please refer to the IOIO Wiki for the full documentation of IOIO including pinouts, firmware, and libraries.

* Note: IOIO has 48 pins. Two pins on IOIOMint are unavailable (pins 1 and 40). Also note Pin 41 is a dedicated special pin for reading the remaining battery life of the on-board LiPO battery which you can expose in your Android application. Outside of these three pins, IOIOMint is a fully compatible IOIO board.
Schematic & Reference Design
IOIOMint can be powered via the mini USB connection, onboard LiPO battery, or with a 5V external power supply.
The power pins are as follows:
