Workshop Update for September 27th, 2012

Posted on Thursday, September 27th, 2012 in Workshop Update by DP

Today is the day we held the “USB and Open Source” presentation at the Open Hardware Summit 2012. This also meant we spent most of the day practicing, and battling stage fright.

We wrote up a basic tutorial on LEDs, all that’s left is to illustrate it. We also worked on a holder board for the 7-ish segment VFD display pictured above.

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
  • Alan: "8-bit x86 like CPU" - isn't that an 8080, or Z80?
  • Geoff: Is it still Sunday somewhere? If so, yes please.
