WAHOOOOOO!

It seems that life is most definitely on my side today. Apart from a couple of burns and an hour or two of complete utter frustration, I can happily announce that around 95% of Phobass IV Mk2 works! Slightly stupidly, I sent off for the new PCB a bit early (before I’d properly had a […]

Phobass PCB Success!

Well! Even after a bit of a dodgy design, I’m happy to say that the PCB’s have quite good success! I’ve now linked up the menu and mainboard PCB and have got the menu successfully working! The PCB’s in shot showing the main board and menu linked. Even though the center button on the menu […]

Phobass IV Mk2.2 PCB’s

Well! After the minor (I lie – major) disaster with the first design, I’ve redesigned the problems out of the PCB’s and have sent off to Itead studio for them to be made again. hopefully this time, they’re completely working! While I find it really annoying spending £26 on a new set of PCB’s, I’m […]

I wouldn’t consider myself a full on audiophile though I enjoy bullplopping about sound quality and specifications and enjoy my music being played to a […]

Phobass PCB disaster!

The power section has one wrong link and the model that I made for the processor board is 0.1″ too small. I’m a little annoyed but fortunately, these problems can be relatively easily rectified. I’ve […]

Phobass PCB’s

Wahoo! Today, to my utmost surprise, all the way from the eastern lands of Asia, my PCB’s arrived! Its been somewhat fast from PCB order to arrival (around 2 weeks, the standard time for an ITEAD order). I’m really happy though the silkscreen quality on the motherboard PCB’s seems to have deteriorated a bit. Regardless, […]

Quadruped update

Me and my partner in design crime Richard have been quite heavily designing the Quadruped these past few days. After speaking to my tutor at university about funding, he brought up that I should mention the project in an LCF (Learning Committee Forum). Regardless, he said I should hopefully be able to get funding as […]
