Workshop Update for January 31st, 2013

Posted on Thursday, January 31st, 2013 in Workshop Update by DP


We received tools and tested the reflow oven and hot plate. Added a tools section to the forum, you can get the PDF versoin of the reflow oven manual there. The workshop video of the tool unboxing was made.

We purchased an air-compressor for the solder paste dispenser, and got to clear almost all back mail.

We implemented the UART debugging mode for the Bus Pirate v4 we talked about yesterday. All you need to do is add ‘#define BPV4_DEBUG’ to the ‘base.h’ file, and your next Bus Pirate v4 compile will transfer the communication from the USB to the UART on the AUX1 and AUX2 pins.

    I like the prose format of this workshop update. Easier to read than bullet points.
