Workshop Update for July 26th, 2012

Posted on Thursday, July 26th, 2012 in Sick of Beige, Workshop Update by DP

Releasing the Sick of Beige standard PCB template and cases dominated the day. We made a video about it, showed off the standard PCB library, and presented the two initial SoB v1 case designs.

As a demo project for the Sick of Beige cases, toady we designed 2 protoboards on DP6037  (60mmx37mm) standard PCBs. One is just the standard PCB filled with a 0.1” pitch prototyping area, while the other features a footprint for the a MINI-B USB connector. Build up a circuit on the protoboard and stick it safely in a laser cut acrylic case for only $3. You can check out our other protoboards here.

  • gant: They still have a couple of the more expensive (but still considerably cheap) 5S-I-S01 in stock...
  • readybrek: Anyone got a any recommendations for a budget-priced hot air station?
  • William: lol I'm happy to waste 3c for each program/debug cycle... but probably not the time spent soldering a new device down to a proto board!...
  • Joe Desbonnet: Ya, I can recommend the low melting point solder. I used brand 'ChipQuik' and it's amazingly easy to use.
  • Jerome: I need a new BusPirate for the Fablab ;) Many thanks!
