OpenPnP Solder Paste Dispensing Video #Solder #OpenSource @OpenPnP @McuOnEclipse

Erich Styger on the McuOnEclipse blog posts about OpenPnP, an open source framework to run Pick & Place machines, as a follow-on to a previous post.
OpenPnP (see “Building a DIY SMT Pick&Place Machine with OpenPnP and Smoothieboard (NXP LPC1769)“) is a cool open source framework to run Pick&Place machines. I have mentored and supported Tobias Mailänder who extended the PnP machine with the ability to dispense solder paste on PCBs. Below a video (courtesy of Tobias Mailänder) which shows the machine in action.

It is still a prototype, but things are working very well.

The dispensing head has an extra camera and is controlled by an NXP K20DX128 through OpenPnP. Firmware is implemented with GNU gcc for ARM and using Eclipse, running FreeRTOS. The camera allows to use the machine in mode with the support of OpenPnP: move to a pad automatically with the machine, and then paste manually.

See the post and lots more on the MCU on Eclipse blog.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
