Workshop Update for July 9th, 2012
Today we finished building latest revision, and started testing the secret project firmware. We found a couple of bugs in our latest PCB design. The ‘DIR’ pin of the 74xx245 transceiver was connected to GND instead of being pulled high, and the ‘R/W’ pin of the LCD was left unconnected. We also organized in-progress projects for the next 6 months of projects.
We continued sourcing part suppliers for our part-kit. We sent parts lists to suppliers that replied to our requests on ebay.
