Workshop Update for September 11th, 2012

Posted on Tuesday, September 11th, 2012 in Workshop Update by DP

Today we built up 14 Nixie Display boards, trying to figure out how to connect the sockets without stripping 240 individual 3″ wires.

We also started working on some illustrations for the OHS 2012 USB presentation. We made some models, and are in the process of rendering them. You can check out a preview video of the presentation here.

In hardware design we fixed an error on the ATX Breakout Board V2. The voltage adjustment pots had their pins connected backwards.

    Re the sockets.

    How about a solder-in punch-down strip?
