I received new boards from PCBWay for the Always-On project. They are well made for a really low price.
As you can see in the previous image, the layer alignment is very good. Also, I do not have to worry about small fonts on the silk layer. I use 1mm labels and fine 0.2mm lines for this board.
The shown boards are sensor boards. The Always-On system uses a simple eight wire connector system to create modular sensor assemblies. I will show the used wires and TE Micro MaTch connector system in another post.
If you have any questions, missed any information, or simply want to provide feedback, feel free to comment below. 😄
In this short update, I will talk about the improved stepper driver for the pet-feeder device. While working on the sensor board, to see if the fill sensors work as expected, it also involved using ...Read More
I created a new tool to easily convert bitmaps into code for MicroPython. This first version is just a start, creating a framework where I can add additional converters. If you have any questions, missed ...Read More
When I wrote part 3 of the pet feeder series, I did not expect the light transmission issues of this part. Now, I have two solutions with new revisions of the part. Solution 1: Epoxy ...Read More
I wrote a small application to generate random circle patterns. You just specify the width and height of the rectangle to fill and the application will fill the area with the circles you specified. The ...Read More
I worked on testing the sensor board. The first tests I did were about the position sensor. Recap Let me recap the design of the position sensor in the device: The turntable has five position ...Read More
After successfully embedding magnets, I started experimenting embedding whole PCB boards into prints. I am sure, this is no new idea, but I found it very interesting. From the outside, the printed object looks solid ...Read More
