Another OverLoad review

Another review of ITead’s OverLoad programmable dummy load:

All in all, interesting device. The only major flaw I see attm is that instead of using DAC and drive the current value trough mcu they are doing that analogue … I’ll check schematic to see if there is DAC on board at all, but if not I see that there is i2c on the connector, maybe it would be an easy hack to add DAC there and link instead of the pot .. I haven’t used i2c dac’s mostly spi but I assume there are some nice i2c versions too :)

Thanks arhi. Via the forum.
