Microcontroller logic board with I/O prototyped in short order
For several weeks I was quite busy on a contract job creating a custom logic board for a small manufacturer out west. I had estimated 5-6 weeks (about 150 hours), not including time to acquire PC boards and build first articles. At 56 hours billed I had the very legitimate breadboard shown and a large portion of the firmware prototyped. The client felt that wasn’t sufficient progress, so I ended that relationship and refunded his payments in full.
If anyone needs a nice little custom logic board and firmware, let me know!
So far it includes:
I also just added an I2C interface to a multi-line LCD. That’s primarily for use during development (it only takes 2 processor pins!) but could hang around in a product.
Here my breadboard is connected to a recent addition to my tools: a Hewlett-Packard 54540A DSO. Read the tale of that scope.
