Soldering iron driver update

Posted on Friday, December 30th, 2011 in project logs by DP

Arhi posted pictures of his latest soldering iron driver build:

Here are the pictures of the populated board. Actually the DC driver is not populated as I’m not very interested in it and there’s no usb connector and D10, R40 as those are also only required for USB operation and I ain’t going to be using USB not even for bootloader, all debugging I’ll do trough serial and programming trough ICSP connector on board. The PIC18F2550 is not in the “stand” because I was still testing how analog side of things worked (works perfectly). Now I’ll go write some firmware to get this puppy running :)

  • Drone: So these go for around $330 USD and NO published calibration procedure online or otherwise? Given what's inside - I don't think I'll be considering...
  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
  • Daniel: It's been a week and my comment is still awaiting moderation. Apparently the CIA doesn't want their involvement known?
  • KH: Agree, so okay, I guess he must have learned from somewhere. 100nF and 1000uF is so far apart, that was jarring; it's more magic incantation...
