Workshop update for May 21st, 2012

in Workshop Update by DP | 4 comments

Today we’re getting back to the workshop from our Bay Area Maker Faire visit. Over the next few days you can expect the full coverage, and a few videos. Be sure to check out our Twitter feed for lots of pictures from the Maker Faire and the after party.

In the workshop we are figuring out a way to add a buck-boost dc-dc converter to the Bus Pirate. For now we’re using the standard buck-boost topology being driven with a microcontroller.

We made a 3D model of the MMA7455L breakout board and rendered an image of it. That will be up later today.

The firmware for the Part Ninja has gone through cleanup, and proper documentation was added to all the existing functions. We also made some schematics to explain the way it figures out various electronics parts.

In the office we sent out the coupon codes to this Sunday’s free PCB winners. We are also following up on some new stock update requests.
