    Thank you to all who helped........... all 3 systems are working now and I have another 4 on the way from Dejan so I know what I'm doing now........

    Ironically it seems that keeping the receiver well over 1 metre away from the sensors gave the best results....... too close and it seems to get confused.

    Thanks again to all who gave assistance.

    New TPMS PCB

    Hey guys, here are some pics of the PCB we are working on. I will have pics of the whole production process shortly for those of you that are interested in the PCB assembly production process.

    Wow.
    I'd decided against adding this feature as it wasn't very cost effective but i think now its cheaper and an all in 1 kit i'll reconsider.

    Good panelisation... How many layers is the board?

    No issues seeing the panelised PCB snapshots.

    Another question.

    I see that the PIC is an SMD now.
    Nice choice from a production point of view, but how is the fimware upgrade planned if Robby releases a firmware fix some time down the lane? Can this be done via USB?

    There is a 6 pin header used for programming and reprogamming if needed, only problem is that you will most likely have to send them in if they need to be reprogrammed as I am sure most of you don't have a progammer lying around and also because Robby would like to have control over the firmware. I don't think the current design will support reprogamming via USB but you have to ask Robby about that. Oh and its just a double sided board, there isn't much on the back though.

    LYHTSPD if you can't see the pictures here then check either Centrafuse forums or Portal Media forums as I have them posted there as well.

    have you got an idea on the price including sensors yet?
    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story
