Today’s advances

Today has actually been a really successful day! I finished the routing of Watch 3 and sent the gerber files to ITead Studio for them to be developed into PCB’s, managed to get my personal Bluetooth packet system working and had a tasty postal order through! One of the things that came in the post […]

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 […]

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

I’m really happy though the silkscreen quality on the motherboard PCB’s seems to have deteriorated a bit. Regardless, […]
