USB POV Toy: Soldered prototype

in Development, POV Toy by Ian | 2 comments

Here’s the soldered prototype of the USB POV Toy.  The first power up exploded a backwards tantalum capacitor with an impressive spark, but after that was sorted everything seems to be ok.

The tiny MMA7455L accelerometer took a few tries to solder, but now we can access it with the Bus Pirate using I2C or SPI. More testing to follow.

Follow our testing and progress in the development thread.
