Robson’s

Post by Robson » Tue May 19, 2020 3:14 pm

Board’s arrived just now. This was the 3rd to last.
Will see how other commitments and projects allow me to progress but I am positive. Hoping to get it booting by the end of play today (haha nah, not that positive).
Most of the parts are here though.

Good work so far, but can I offer some advice?

Before you go ahead and fit any more components, do the surface mount components, the reset IC and LS11 are particularly tiny and difficult to place with other components in the way.

I forgot the LS11 and it was really not fun fitting it after everything else.

Keep up the good work.

PS if as I was you are unsure of any of the smaller component orientation, I'm happy to get some pics of mine.

Thanks. I might ask later.

However I did consider access to those hence not fitted few things around them. It is quite late (or too early) so left them for the next build day.

Btw what H4 stands for?

Ehh. I can't find my 32Mhz oscillator....had to order (run Chris run) so I'm probably delayed until next week. Will complete what I can until then.

No probs. I wasn’t even sure how I would progress with the build. Not running anywhere.
