Workshop Update for October 18th, 2012

Posted on Thursday, October 18th, 2012 in Workshop Update by Filip

Today we concentrated on getting the Workshop Video out. Got two nifty tubes of scratch and dent chips from Microchip. Bus Blaster v3, and v4 finished validation and are going to manufacturing.

We continue working on the TFT carrier board, with a preliminary schematic pictured above. This one features a PIC24F microcontroller, and an SD card holder. It’s intended as a TFT board with an UART controlled onboard GPU.
