Hello all,     Update on the complete challenge Here are some posts to get you started if you jumped into this challenge, and didn't get the full context: Smarter Life Challenge Competitors (thanks joeman!) Review of first design week! Overview - week 2 of PSOC Design Challenge Overview, Week 3 and a bit Overview, week 4 and a bit Overview, week 5   A word about deadlines This is a challenge; probably the greatest challenge will be to get your projects finished in time! The ...
If you like my project vote for "A Smarter Tricopter - Yuri Tikhonov"   Good day comrades! This week I've devoted all my free time to the project, to complete its programming part.   So this week I've done the following: connected indication led (now - RGB, in a future - 3 independent leds); connected avionics (IMU): Gyro - L3G4200D, Accelerometer - ADXL345; PID-regulators, complimentary filter etc.   Now my stand looks like this:   New components: Gyro L3G4200D ...
TOP BILLING    The LED arrays come in individual 16x16 LED squares and I have mounted 12 such arrays on a single piece of MDF to form a 64 x 48 matrix array for my prototype (3072 LEDs). The MDF also forms a great method of keeping the wiring neat and concealed from view and to protect the LED arrays from damage. There are inter array gaps to allow for suitable wire bend radii for the attached wiring because I do not want to stress the flexible PCB substrate and tear tracks off. ...
