    I think they only gave out info about the original ICD -- I could be wrong about that. You can find several designs by searching Google for "ICD2 Clone". Here's the one I built.

    If you have any other questions about this please PM or start a new thread.

    You mentioned that you've done some hardware testing. I was curious if that included confirming radio reception. Or is that part a secret.

    Ok, well when the time comes, contact me.

    Read it again, IIRC the only testing that's been done was basic power on/off testing. Racemier indicated that there wasn't any smoke and various voltages checked out.

    Right now we're working on developing some minimalist control software (I2C direct from PC) to enable continued testing.

    There are no secrets here and in fact we're as eager to know how/if this works as everyone else. Check the previous threads and you'll see that we're more than willing to admit when things don't work and move on to another approach.

    uhmmm

    Hey,

    With a little bit of proudness I have to say the unit is actually working. It's still in test fase but it looks very promising. All concerned IC are responding to I2C and actualy do what they need to do. Today I tried the reception of the tuner with a piece of wire and it received the stations I calculated. Tomorrow I will connect a real car antenna and start seriously testing the tuner. Also the RDS/RBDS won't escape the tests. When everything is OK the second prototype will be build and when the blessing is there...

    Regards,

    Good work Rogier! I'm glad to learn you got your I2C issues worked out.

    I know, but I read this line and went, "hmmmm.":

    1) Electrical testing of the device / power up - down cycles and other hardware testing. Step status : COMPLETE

    But I guess it doesn't matter because Racemier already confirmed reception in the above post.
