In this project I want to build a prototyping shield with space for a uC and a area where you can set up your own wiring. Additional I want to have also a charging port in which you can solder the wires of your qi-charger or whatever.
I will make a first batch of 10 PCBs, so if you are interessted tell me!
On my hackaday channel I’m also blogging frequently, so you better check it out:
What is done:
stencil recieved !!
I am interested and would take one. Are the chips already soldered on? Because i don’t have much experience there…
Also: Do you also have a case where this all fits in? I remember seeing you posting something like that.
@Drezil That`s cool If you want the components placed I could do that
I don`t have a case for this pcb but I will make one
PCB just goes out to PCB-Service
If you eant to increase your soldering skills, or need somthing soldered, just text me. Looks like it would not be a long drive as your are located close to me
Here you can see a few functionalities the PCB has on board
Hope you like it
Wow, the PIRAFONE 2 has become a reality!
PCBs are produced and will be shipped
Parts should have been delivered but I wasn’t at home since monday…
And today I will order the stencil to get a good soldering result !!
good to hear.
i just wanted a heads up, because i cannot wait to tinker with it
That’s allways nice to hear !!
I thought about programming an app to get a feeling for the serial communication
This is what it will look on your phone:
Hope you like it !!
I already have my qi-charger ready and think about installing magnets for an usb-adapter-cable (like the macbook-plugs), so i can use my keyboard on my phone
I’m pretty excited how big the hole PCB will get in the end
Okey do you have a sketch or so ? sounds pretty cool !!
But you know that the reciever circuit is not part of the PCB …
Why haven’t you linked to the Hackaday.io page for this yet? Or is that against forum rules?
He did, in the right thread:
You are right the hackaday-page is about both projects !!
@Drezil I got myself this little guy !!
Potential use for the prototyping shield:
-> IR communication ( https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/ir-communication )
-> adding environmental sensors like LDRs or air pressure sensor (temperature sensor allready included)
=> basicly you can add allmost every sensor
-> doing some light shows with the build in 8 blue LEDs or the WS2812B (also on the board)
=> so basicly the use cases are allmost endless and you can build whatever you like
I finished the designe of the new case for the DIY-extension and ordered it on shapeways !!
I think sls-printing will work much better
That case looks great
My QI-Reciever is a bit different, but seems similar from the dimensions so it might also fit into that casing …
care to share the model for that?
For all others interested: Thats a little QI-Reciever from Amazon for upgrading your device (thus the micro-usb-adapter at the bottom).
I’m glad that this slowly takes shape
