STM32F0 Audio graphic spectrum analyzer

What’s cooler (than being cool, ice cold? no…) than having the ability to view the spectrum of audio?! A few things I hear you say, to which I also agree. On the other hand, viewing the spectrum of your music can be a fun and “wow factor” way to show off how electronics can do […]

Watch 2 Update

Its been a pretty hectic exam period (It hasn’t really, I just didn’t really know what to start the post with!) but I’ve regardless managed to finish Watch 1, finish most of the construction of Watch 2, design and send off for Watch 3 and learn a fair bit about Visual basic along with way! […]

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 PCB disaster!

Oh no! After completing the mainboard PCB, it turns out that I’ve wrongly designed two sections of ther board, damn! 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, […]

Phobass PCB’s

Today, using one of my favourite PCB companies ever, I sent off for my Phobass IV PCB’s to be made! I didn’t get round to designing the “string” PCB as that will require much more though and I’m wanting to jump right into finally completing IV! I’ve also fully completed the menu system and at […]

Phobass menu update

After a nice trip down to London to go and see my family, I had the joy of 4 hours of train travel! That to me seems like the ideal time to program compared to waiting doing absolutely nothing. I brought along my breadboard with my LCD and STM32F0 discovery to test my programming though […]

Phobass menu system

Having had a drastic rethink over the whole Phobass design, I’ve decided that I’m going to scrap the idea of making the patch editing PC based and have a dedicated patch editor onboard. Using my trusty PCD8544 Nokia LCD and the library I wrote, I’ve been writing a menu system. So far, I’ve got the […]
