[MinnowBoard] 1.6V output on gpio pin

Just a side note, I did point you to the Tadpole Lure page earlier. It has a basic example of operating a LED using a transitor. You can also look at the Calamari lure. The Calamari was designed to show how to implement basic I/O on the Low Speed Expansion. This includes examples for driving a LED, push buttons, I2C interfaces, and SPI.

Yes! This is awesome stuff and I'll gladly take all the help anyone wants to provide. Thank you :-)

At this level (driving LEDs and stuff) my past experience is with PICs and ATMELs (which are now the same, I guess), and with them it was quite easy to hook up an LED directly to a pin (with a resistor) and start toggling. But it makes sense (now) that a modern, highly dense part (like what's in the minnow) would behave very differently.

Is the switch you drew considered a buffer? If someone said I needed to add a buffer to by design I would imagine something involving a flip-flop (but, as you can see, I'm still getting familiar with this stuff).
