Duel Nature PCBs

Last weekend I found an hour or two to relayout the PCBs to fit into the square tubing better. The boards are thinner and theres a tab below the microcontroller so you can grab it with a pair of pliers without damage.

There’s also a white silkscreen square to write an address to identify each PCB (since they’re addressable)

Then I checked the gerbers with GC Prevue and sent them off to 4PCB.com tuesday afternoon. With 2 day turn and overnight shipping that means they arrive Friday. Since it’s Kate’s first order with them, she gets $500 off the order… Basically we pay for shipping ($50).
Tomorrow I have to solder up 80 Duel Nature PCBs (maybe try out making silkscreens on the lasercutter)


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. That’s one heck of a days work. I hope you have an army of fanboys & stalkers to help.
    I bet at least six LEDs around the wrong way…
    Many Regards,
    Andy.
