I have received the programmed chips from Curiosity for building the modified Cario.
Today I have received 5 prototype boards... will be assembleing them this weekend
For removing my air condtitioning unit so I can move the screen up. The AC unit will still be there behind the screen, and it will have the USB controller controlling it from the computerOriginally Posted by Cris
Controller's inputs/outputs are totally isolated too
Progress: Sodered everything I had. Ordered some stuff from mouser. When I get that stuff, it won't be done unfortunately as it has an SMD part that my grandpa will soder at his job.
Pics are on my camera that's being thrashed around my trunk
An SMD part? At his job?
First, you can't (shouldn't) put a populated board through the oven... you would have to have him do that first and then solder all the thru-hole once he is done.
You can do it by hand anyway though. I have soldered 100-pin processors, and memory chips to PCBs. I solder SMD caps/resistors daily. The only thing you can't to by hand is MPL (micro-lead-package) and BGA (ball-grid-array) parts, however I have managed to do a 20-pin MLP by hand before as well.
