NU-Xtal packages winner
Today we announce the winner of the NU-Xtal packages! These boards are quartz crystal and load capacitance breakouts, designed for breadboard prototyping by Mats. There were lots of great ideas, thanks for your submissions.
Congratulations to Kevin, his idea for a function generator scored him the NU-Xtal 20 Mhz package:
I have been thinking about making a function generator that is essentially the inverse of the Logic shrimp. Use a cheap micro to fill up serial SRAMs with whatever pattern is requested, then just continuously clock them to read out into an D2A converter.
Congratulations to Garrett, his idea for a ATMEGA1284 powered robot scored him the NU-Xtal 16 Mhz package:
That 16MHz crystal would also work very well on my new atmega1284 which will be going into robot making use of the frame of an old RC HUMMV (it had a rechargeable battery holder and the motors and wheels needed already together, so why not?)
And last but not least congratulations to Callen, his honesty gets him one NU-Xtal unpopulated PCB:
Well, nothing particularly… It’s for breadboarding, so I’d use it any time a breadboard was used and I needed it. I’ve got a lot of projects in the pot brewing and as my daughter gets older, I’m finding more time to work on them.
Thank you to Mats Engstrom for the free swag.
Thank you for participating, there were a bunch of great ideas. As always feel free to share your projects in the forum.This entry was posted in contest and tagged giveaway, NU-Xtal package.
