For those of you who don’t follow me on twitter (the link is in the sidebar), here are the updates of the blog since the last post in May:
- The Mobius Modular’s Motherboard has been reworked and produced with SeeedStudio’s PCB service (which I recommend to anyone wanting to make industrial-like prototypes in low batches, it can cost as less as 1$ the board for 10 boards, definitely something to check out). Also, it costed half the price I paid for the first version of the motherboard (though it was bigger) and I got 12 units against one, for the price of ten! And did I mention it took only half the time to manufacture it (2 weeks instead of a month).. Now I just hope the few bucks I invested in the 100% electrical testing are worth it..
- The pictures of the Motherboard are available on Flickr.
- I just received a package from SparkFun containing some tools to get to the hard work of assembling the SMD components on the Motherboard. I’ll write a review after a quick test to bring the (mad) DIY spirit back to the blog (have you ever tried to reflow-solder a PCB in a frying pan?)
