A complex little city


Laying out the PCB is like designing a city but where the streets can't touch. The PCB design is well under way and will be finalized in the next few days. Once its complete a small order will be placed to verify the design. The PCBs will be hand populated by us and rigorously tested. They will then go on to be the golden sets used for manufacturing references. The PCB order will take a few weeks to come in so in the meantime the functional prototype will let us develop the software.

Tiny Soldering


There are a lot of changes from PEGS 1.0 to PEGS 2.0 so a prototype was needed to test out all these changes. The new circuit has been point to point soldered and testing has begun. Results are good (and it looks fantastic!) so the PCB is now being designed. After the PCB design is finished we will start on the code so expect some video posts of the working model soon!
