PCB a Week 6: GolGrid Conway’s game of life emulator 4×4 LED modules

Mats continues his challenge of designing one PCB every week. In week 6 he came up with GolGrid, a Conwat’s game of life emulator 4×4 LED modules. The modules are designed to accept commands over the UART protocol, and set or clear the corresponding LEDs. This weeks PAW will be a similar board, but SMD […]

PCB a Week 5: Oledy generic OLED breakout board

Mats continues his challenge of designing one PCB every week. In week 5 he came up with Oledy, a breakout board featuring 8 most common pitches for OLED display connectors, spanning from 0.5mm to 1mm. The Oledy board is a 5×5 cm board meant to be cut in half ending up with two boards 2.5 […]

PCB a Week 1: Crystal oscillator breakout

Matseng started a challenge for himself where he intends to post a PCB project a week. The first project is “NanoUtils Xtal” – a crystal oscillator breakout board. The board is designed to be interfaced with microcontrollers that have their oscillator pins next to a ground pin. This board is a breakout containing a SMD […]
