EclaireXL: Missing parts

Added by foft over 1 year ago

Panos is waiting for the last few remaining parts to arrive. Most notably the FT232 USB chip. We're expecting they will arrive later this week.

EclaireXL: Sub-board

Added by foft over 1 year ago

Here is the first picture of a sub-board, which also arrived in Greece. None completed yet but all the parts fit - and they fit in the Mhero S R case.

EclaireXL: Boards received

Added by foft over 1 year ago

The boards arrived in Greece. Panos is in the process of adding some final parts and trying them out.

Some good news:
FPGA is seen on JTAG
FPGA can be flashed ok
The core runs, the USB keyboard is working, SD card access is working.

Some bad news:
Video DAC regulator didn't work. We're not clear why, but Panos patched it to use the main 3.3V regulator and its now working well. On the previous prototype we only used a single regulator so this is a tested setup.

More news as we continue with testing.

EclaireXL: Delays

Added by foft over 1 year ago

We received an update from the PCB company. Unfortunately it wasn't to say 'shipping' as we'd hoped.

Instead they requested some more information for their machine setup, so apparently they have not started assembly yet as promised!

They now have the information they need so I trust they will start this without further delay.
