We are back with an update on the design of partyduino. The team has made significant progress with the project and is getting ready for production. The design group finished their design by adding a low-pass filter to the output. Dan and Mat created a barebones version of the partyduino that closely represents the actual PCB. They ran into issues with the bootloader but overcame those issues swiftly and had the partyduino up and running by the end of the lab. While the other teams were working on design aspects of the circuit, Mike was preparing the parts list and datasheets that will assist in the design of the PCB. The datasheets will be used to gather the dimensions of each part and to help design the footprint of the parts to be out on the PCB.
We will be back next week with another update!!!
