Re: Use of PIC Controller with Built in USB

For that you have to ask a lawyer in your country. But my guess is that in US the answer will be something about circumventing DRM (Digital rights management) and thus also falls under DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act). And then the end-result product might be "tainted" by those poss...

Re: 3D Gerber Viewer

Ollright! Now it renders nicely. Thanks. But I couldn't find any "holes" in the outline. If I drag the different segments of the outline in Eagle its neighboring segments moved along, that usually indicates that Eagle have them connected. Maybe there was some rounding error in the write-as...

Re: 3D Gerber Viewer

Doub, a time saving feature for me would be if I just could drop a zip file instead of the separate gerbers onto the viewer. I usually make a final check of the zipped gerbers before sending them off to the fab to spot any leftover brainfarts. Another thing, it seems like if I have silk extending ou...

Re: Use of PIC Controller with Built in USB

Yea, it seems like it actually would be possible to distribute the source of Microchip libraries. The term "software" is not defined in the pdf, but it can be inferred that the source is a part of the software and thus can be re-distributed as long as the "click to accept" condit...

Fusebulb

While browsing one of the numerous "dollar stores" in the area where I live I found this small tester pen. It was kinda nice in yellow metal (might actually be brass) and a protected needle and it seemed large enough for fitting small button cell batteries inside so I bought a few for &quo...

Re: Uranium glass wearable

Do you really need a proper connector? Maybe just two small pieces of metal that is "magnetic" that can snap to two small neodymium magnets that are connected to the charging power... That would make it easier to connect as well. If there's a charging indicator on the pendant or the base c...

Re: 504 Segment Clock

The board is so wonderfully strange and odd that I wish that I thought about it before you :-) Well done and very cool.

Re: I am looking for a professional HTTPS Hosting

I don't know of usage of managed hosting would be compliant with hipaa or not. Running your "own" server at Amazon AWS is apparently ok though. http://d36cz9buwru1tt.cloudfront.net/AW ... _Final.pdf.

Re: Cheap Nokia 1202 B/W LCDs

Probably as few black pixels as possible and run it on the lowest voltage it can manage - seems like 1.6 volts.

There's a Power Save -mode, but that turns off the display so it's not much of use for a wall clock. :-)

Re: 3D Gerber Viewer

Ooohhhhhh.... This is really nice!

I tested the latest version on a few different gerbers with internal cutouts and it rendered them flawlessly. And the no-silk-on-copper option works just fine as well.

Thank you for a fine piece of software.

Re: Electronic stylus help

Ok.... Well, the touch screen styluses doesn't contain any electronic parts at all. You can make them with virtually any conductive material. http://makezine.com/projects/diy-capacitive-stylus/

Re: Electronic stylus help

I assume you mean a Stylophone (musical instrument) and not an Electronic Stylus (a pen for touch screens).... Much simpler than this http://www.instructables.com/id/A-Stylophone/?ALLSTEPS is hard to get for an analogue version or http://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Arduino-Nebulophone-Synth/ for a ...

Re: A development board for Lua programming

I'm not an expert in the area, but my uneducated guess would be that matched-length routing might be a bit overkill here. The maximum sdram-clk from the stm is only 90 MHz giving a cycle time of about 10 nS. If the lengths of the data lines varies by 1 cm that would give a skew of 3 pS (calculated o...

Re: Tindie commission increase

If I was running Tindie I'd just outsource the bookkeeping. 10000 transactions in like two years is only about 15 per day. Say 50 txn today, that's not a major task. And with a bit of coding-wizardry the system should be able to generate datafiles that the ledger can import directly. Same thing with...
